    The U.S. had long avoided formally recognising the 1915 mass killings of Armenians as a genocide.

    Now, President Joe Biden has become the first American leader to do just that.

    The move has caused anger in Turkey.

    Where the government disputes the number of Armenians killed during the end of the Ottoman empire, and denies it was a genocide.

    It strongly rejected Biden’s designation and summoned the American ambassador in protest.

    But many Armenians and rights groups have welcomed the decision.

    So, where does this leave relations between two of NATO’s biggest armies?
