The first country to officially recognize the Armenian Genocide was Uruguay. Clearly it was only their own national interest in their close neighbour Turkey that led to them doing this, and then pressuring all the others that followed later!Not a red herring. What Turkey does or doesn't does not suit others. Only Turkey gets criticized this bad and only Turkey is not allowed to bend the rules. If it was not for Turkey, others would rule Turkey. And if it was not for other countries, we would be ruling them. This is just how the world rolls. So in the end, there is no way that there could be an unbiased opinion when it comes to this, as long as there is an outside party having no affiliation to either side, good or bad, and having access to absolutely truthful sources.
So if others who have negative interests in Turkey, as the map for nations (and pressured nations) who accepted the existence of the Armenian "genocide" shows, will of course be saying this. Whether the "genocide" be true or not, they do not care about that.
What a shame that the Ottoman allies were also aware of the genocide happening.During WWI, sure, there was talks among the West of Turks killing Armenians. Even a simple deportation could be used as propaganda with a little bit of fiction.
