U.S. President Donald Trump, in a traditional presidential statement issued every April 24, used the term "Meds Yeghern", an Armenian term meaning "great calamity", and once again avoided labeling the events as "genocide", just like his predecessor Barack Obama. A subsequent relocation of Armenians resulted in numerous casualties.

France, through Georges Clemenceau, Anatole France and Jean Jaurès, condemned the massacres of Armenian in the Ottoman Empire and accepted thousands of survivors.

While the number of Armenians who perished during the genocide remains under debate, Armenians say 1.5 million died, while Turkey suggests 300,000 perished.

Aroutin Hartounian, president of the Unified Young Armenians, told AFP the atmosphere was "more positive" because "there was a victory for the youth, the new generation, the democratic ideals" - referring to Sarkisian's resignation. "The Roman persecution of the Christians, the Turkish massacres of Armenians, the extermination of millions of Jews and Poles by the Nazis are outstanding examples of the crime of genocide".

"We also want to remember all those who helped victims, all those who helped rebuild Armenian civilization and culture".

"As we honor the memory of those who suffered, we also reflect on our commitment to ensure that such atrocities are not repeated", he added. "We oridam from the U.S. administration truthful evaluation period, which brought untold suffering to all inhabitants of the Ottoman Empire", - said in a statement the foreign Ministry.

The former U.S. presidents, starting from 1981, including Barack Obama, also refused to call the historical events a "genocide".
