The U.S. position on Armenian claims of 1915 events has not changed, a spokesperson for the U.S. Embassy in Ankara said Friday.

“The position of the [U.S.] administration [on Armenian claims of 1915 events] has not changed. Our views are reflected in President [Donald Trump]’s definitive statement on this issue from last April,” the spokesperson told Anadolu Agency on condition of anonymity.

The U.S. Senate unanimously passed a resolution on Thursday that recognizes Armenian claims of 1915 events.

On April 24, Trump used the Armenian term “Meds Yeghern” to describe the tragedy.
