ArmInfo.The United States does not deny this historical fact, US Ambassador to the RA Lynne Tracy stated on April 24 at the memorial of the victims of the  Armenian Genocide in an interview with journalists.

"Today, we pay tribute to the memory. The United States at the  hearings on the statement noted and emphasize again that Washington  does not deny this historical fact, these events. What happened in  1915 is one of the worst mass barbarities of the 20th century, and we  continue to encourage the resilience that we see among the Armenian  people, "assured Tracy.

To note, the United States has not yet recognized the Armenian  Genocide in the Ottoman Empire. But, it is remarkable that this fact  was recognized by 49 out of 50 states of the USA.
