U.S. Ambassador: Regarding comments made in the United States
I would like to clarify U.S. policy. Misunderstandings may have arisen as a result of comments made by me during recent informal meetings with Armenian-American groups in the United States regarding the characterization of the Armenian tragedy in Ottoman Turkey and the future status of Nagorno Karabakh.
Although I told my audiences that the United States policy on the Armenian tragedy has not changed, I used the term �genocide� speaking in what I characterized as my personal capacity. This was inappropriate."
