GLENDALE (4:34PM)–Speaking at a press conference at the Glendale Hilton on Friday, US Ambassador to Armenia Marrie L. Yovanovitch dodged the Armenian Genocide issue, deferring to President Obama’s April 24 statement as US policy. In response to questions from Asbarez English editor Ara Khachatourian, Yovanovitch said the President’s statement, which avoided the word Genocide, is US Policy.
The Ambassador will participate in a community forum tonight at “Avedissian” Hall of Ferrahian School (5300 White Oak Ave., Encino). During the forum, which is open to the public, Yovanovitch will address the community, followed by a question and answer session.
Asbarez will provide more coverage as the news unfolds.
