Turkey has suffered another blow in connection with participation
to its forthcoming 100th anniversary commemorations of the Battle
of Gallipoli.

Accordingly, not only has US President Barack Obama declined from
personally attending these events, but he will send no one from his
country to be on hand at these commemorations.

Even though a US delegation will not participate in the Battle of
Gallipoli 100th anniversary events to be organized by the Turkish
president on Friday, April 24, US Ambassador to Turkey John Bass will
be at Gallipoli, reported Sozcu daily of Turkey.

To note, the Vatican likewise has decided not to send a delegation
to the Gallipoli commemorations.
