Gagik Harutyunyan, the head of Noravank Scientific Educational
Foundation, has a good feeling when it comes to international
recognition of the Armenian Genocide. Genocide recognition by the US,
he considers to be inevitable.

"It is a common practice to say that they will not recognize [the
Genocide]. But everything is changing so fast," said Harutyunyan at
a press conference today, adding that the US Congress may one day
discuss the Armenian Genocide seriously.

Ruben Safrastyan, head of the Institute of Oriental Studies at the
RA National Academy of Sciences, in turn, said that the US will soon
recognize the Genocide and that it'll be backed by law.

According to Safrastyan, US President Barack Obama, this time, will
find another synonym to use in his April 24 commemoration address.

"If he fails to find one, he'll have no choice but to use the word
'Genocide'," said Safrastyan.
