    U.S. President Joe Biden on Saturday recognized the mass killing against Armenians more than a century ago as a “genocide,” a move that could further worsen relations between the United States and Turkey.

    Biden is the first U.S. president to use the term “genocide” in describing the mass killing against the Armenian people by the Ottoman Empire, breaking with his predecessors who did not want to undermine relations with Turkey.
