The specific reference to the Armenian Genocide appears on page 25 of the ICJ Report: "The Genocide Convention resulted from the inhuman and barbarous practices which prevailed in certain countries prior to and during World War II, when entire religious, racial and national minority groups were threatened with and subjected to deliberate extermination".

Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Turkey must "share" the pain of Armenians as they commemorated on Tuesday the deaths of more than a million people in what they term a "genocide" by the Ottoman empire in the First World War.

It also recommended that US administration consider the message of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan to the Armenian Church in Istanbul during the commemoration ceremony "addressing the descendants of Ottoman Armenians, which reflects Turkey's approach to this sensitive issue".

The president offered condolences to the families of Ottoman Armenians who lost their lives during the 1915 events. Turkey says the deaths were a part of the First World War and many Turks also died.

The demonstrations on Tuesday come just hours after Armenian Prime Minister Serzh Sargsyan resigned following 10 days of massive anti-government protests in that country.

Acting leader Karen Karapetyan called for unity as crowds gathered at the country's hilltop memorial. We underscore the importance of acknowledging and reckoning with painful elements of the past as a necessary step towards creating a more tolerant future. Thus, keeping always bright the memory of the Armenian Genocide victims, we should have stronger Armenia, secure Artsakh and consolidated Diaspora for reliable and bright future.

Reality TV star Kim Kardashian West, an Armenian-American, tweeted an old photo of herself in Armenia and praised global demonstrations calling for the genocide to be recognized.

Turkey has declined to recognise Armenia's claims and has angrily reacted to any such moves by its allies. At the same time for the last more than one century after 1915 Genocide is a period of remembrance and inflexibility which shows our people, documenting that it is impossible to win us even with Genocide.
