The US government’s decisions orient several countries for different reasons. Thus, it is safe to predict a wave of recognition of the Armenian Genocide by Washington’s allies. This is what Oriental studies expert, leading scientific worker of the Institute of World Economy and International Relations at the Russian Academy of Sciences Victor Nadein-Raevsky told Armenian News-NEWS.am today.
He stated the importance of the fact that the Armenian Genocide was recognized by law by Turkey’s primary ally and that Ankara’s sharp reaction was inevitable, but what is more important is the fact that the US Senate unanimously passed the Armenian Genocide resolution. “The Turks will claim that this is insignificant and is not binding, but that’s not the case at all, taking into consideration the fact that this issue has been the cause of tension between the US and Turkey several times,” Nadein-Raevsky said, adding the following: “Turkey has always stood out with its anti-Armenian actions. However, all the roads to take serious action against Armenia are closed. What keeps Turkey away from taking extreme actions is the Armenian-Russian alliance, which needs to be strengthened, regardless of the political situation in Russia or Armenia,” the Oriental studies expert concluded.
On December 12, the US Senate unanimously passed the Armenian Genocide Resolution submitted by Senators Robert Menendez and Ted Cruz.
