Turkey told Austria on April 22 that an Austrian parliamentary declaration describing the 1915 killings of Armenians by Ottoman Turks as “genocide” would permanently damage the two countries' relations, recalling its ambassador. "This declaration....has caused outrage for us," the Turkish Foreign Ministry said in a statement. "We reject this biased attitude of the Austrian parliament, trying to lecture others on history, which has no room in today's world. "It is clear that this declaration...will have permanent negative effects on Turkey-Austria relations." The ministry said it had recalled its ambassador from Vienna for consultations over the declaration, one of a number by foreign institutions and parliaments as the 100th anniversary of the killings approached. Turkey accepts that Armenians were killed by Ottoman forces during World War I, but denies there was any systematic attack on civilians amounting to “genocide.” Armenian President Serzh Sarksyan said he was ready to normalize relations with Turkey, two months after he withdrew peace accords from parliament. "It takes two to tango and it does not only depend on us," he told journalists. The six parties in Austria's parliament issued a joint declaration calling the killings a “genocide.” It also held a minute of silence commemorating the Armenian victims. "It is our duty to acknowledge and condemn these terrible events as genocide because of our historical responsibility - the Austro-Hungarian monarchy was an ally of the Ottoman Empire in the first world war," the parties said. "It is also Turkey's duty to face honestly dark and painful chapters of its history." Around 268,000 people of Turkish origin live in Austria, according to government figures, of which nearly 115,000 are Turkish citizens. Armenia, most Western scholars and several foreign legislatures refer to the mass killings as genocide. Earlier on April 22, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan said he did not expect U.S. President Barack Obama to use the word "genocide" in reference to the killings. "I would not want Obama to use the word 'genocide', and I would not expect such a thing," Erdoğan told a joint press conference with Iraqi President Fuad Masum. Erdoğan has expressed condolences for the loss of Armenian life during World War I. Germany's parliament is set to adopt a motion using the word "genocide" on April 24. Earlier this month, Pope Francis also called the massacres a “genocide,” prompting Turkey to summon the Vatican's envoy and recall its own.
Members of the Armenian community of Buenos Aires gathered in front of the Azerbaijani embassy in the Argentinian capital, Tuesday, railing at what they see as Turkish and Azeri aggression in the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict. Protesters rallied waving Armenian flags and holding banners with messages such as "no to the military offensive of Azerbaijan against the civil population in Nagorno Karabakh" or "Karabakh=Armenia." According to one of their representatives, President of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev and his Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan "must be brought to an international court of justice to be judged for crimes against humanity." SOT, Spokesperson of the 'Union of the Armenian Youth' (Spanish): "We came to demand that Ilham Aliyev, President of Azerbaijan, and Recep Tayyip Erdogan, President of Turkey, must be brought to a international court of justice to be judged for crimes against humanity that the Azerbaijani troops, instructed by Turkish military personnel, started to commit three days ago" SOT, Spokesperson of the 'Union of the Armenian Youth' (Spanish): "We're here to say stop to the bombing against civil population, stop using drones, stop devastating with tanks, stop using artillery, stop raping, stop mutilating, stop killing, stop destroying, stop the barbaric blood shed! Stop Azerbaijan! Stop!"
