      URUGUAY PLANS ARMENIAN GENOCIDE MUSEUM

      They may be 8,000 miles apart, but Uruguay and Armenia have a history
      together. And, so, perhaps it should come as no surprise that the
      Latin American country is slotted to become the first state apart from
      Armenia to build a museum dedicated to Ottoman Turkey's World-War-I-era
      slaughter of ethnic Armenians.

      The museum in Montevideo is scheduled to open in 2015, on the
      centennial anniversary of the killings, and will have rooms dedicated
      to other genocides as well, local officials say.

      Armenia's tensions with Turkey over the massacre play out in various
      venues around the world, and national takes on the subject tend to
      be commensurate with the size and influence of Armenian Diasporas.

      Uruguay is home to one of the oldest Armenian communities in South
      America and many of its members are descendants of victims of the
      killings. Several Armenian churches, and non-profit groups exist,
      along with Armenian-language radio stations and a newspaper.

      In 1965, Uruguay became the first country - even ahead of Armenia
      itself, which was under Soviet rule at the time - to recognize the
      massacre as genocide. It once even mulled recognition of Nagorno
      Karabakh, an ethnic-Armenian disputed territory that most of the
      world places under Azerbaijan's jurisdiction.

      Turkey views the massacre as a casualty of war and resists Armenian's
      struggle to secure international recognition of the slaughter
      as genocide. It has not yet responded to the Uruguayan museum's
      construction.
