World War One went down in history as a terribly destructive bloodbath, during which millions of people from many nations perished. The Armenians were one of these nations: So were Muslim Ottomans, Jewish Ottomans, Kurds, Arabs, Anzacs, Greeks, Serbs, Germans, French, British, Indians and the list goes on. It was a merciless slaughter for all these people. All the lives lost in that war mattered, not only the Armenian ones.
Rather than a diplomatic battle over one of the slaughters of WWI, why don’t we - as Armenia and Turkey - cooperate and find solutions for how to create jobs, improve health care and education, and deal with child poverty together?Ceylan Ozbudak
