Turkey's President Recep Tayyip Erdogan offered condolences to the participants of the commemoration ceremony for the 1915 tragic events, which was held in the Armenian Church in Istanbul.

"It's been more than a century since the Ottoman Empire began the Armenian Genocide".

More than 100 USA lawmakers signed a letter calling on Trump to acknowledge during this year's anniversary that Meds Yeghern was genocide. "Our gratitude to dozen of countries that have recognized the Armenian Genocide".

"U.S. credibility on human rights and genocide prevention will be better served when we unequivocally affirm the Armenian Genocide".

The President's full statement is provided at the end of this news item.

"I am here today on behalf of the US people to remember and commemorate all those who lost their lives in one of the great atrocities of the 20th century", he told reporters at the Armenian Genocide Memorial Complex. However, Calif. Gov. Jerry Brown issued a statement Tuesday recognizing the genocide.

The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors honored members of the Armenian community as part of the county's Armenian Genocide Remembrance Day.

Today marks the 103 anniversary of the Armenian Genocide.

Argentina, Belgium, Bolivia, Brazil, Canada, Chile, Denmark, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, Lebanon, Lithuania, Russia, and Uruguay are among almost 30 countries that formally recognized the Armenian genocide. "With these thoughts in my mind, I remember with respect, once again, the Ottoman Armenians whom we lost during the First World War", Erdogan added. Forty eight US states have recognized the Armenian Genocide through resolution or proclamation.

Turkey's position on the events of 1915 is that the deaths of Armenians in eastern Anatolia took place when some sided with invading Russians and revolted against Ottoman forces.

"Once again, I remember with respect the Ottoman Armenians who lost their lives, and offer my honest condolences to their children and descendants".

Trump acknowledged the efforts of former U.S. Ambassador to the Ottoman Empire, Henry Morgenthau, in attempting to aid the Armenian people.

"I remember with respect the Ottoman Armenians who lost their lives, and offer my honest condolences to their children and descendants", he said.
