The strongest organization of Armenian Diaspora explained their supporting senator elected from Illinois state with several reasons. They said that they support firstly Obama’s resolution 106 envisaging recognition of the so-called Armenian genocide. The second is that senator has sent official letter of protest to President George Bush on sacking US ambassador to Armenia John Evans who recognized “Armenian genocide”. Moreover, Obama officially stated that if he is elected President he will recognize 1915 events as genocide. The black-skin candidate said that he will try to eliminate “blockade which Azerbaijan and Turkey applied against Armenia” and solve Nagorno Karabakh conflict on the principles of democracy and defining self-determination. Armenian National Committee sounded several accusations against Bush government. They accused President of impeding adoption of the recognition of the so-called genocide in Congress, freezing amendment 907, supporting Baku-Ceyhan project which bypasses Armenia, trying to include official Armenia to the row of countries supporting terror and reducing military-humanitarian assistance rendered to Armenia from year to year. /APA/
