Dr. Maria Koinova on US House Recognition of Armenian Genocide

When Turkey’s president Recep Tayyip Erdoğan visited the White House on November 13, 2019 he said a landmark resolution passed by the House of Representatives in October recognising the Armenian genocide had “hurt deeply the Turkish nation”, and had the “potential to cast a deep shadow over our bilateral relations”.
