BEVERLY HILLS, CA - OCTOBER 04: People upset over Armenia's warming diplomatic relations with Turkey, protest in front of the Beverly Hilton hotel in response to the visit of Armenian President Serzh Sargsyan to Los Angeles on October 4, 2009 in Beverly Hills, California. Protesters calling Sargsyan a traitor want the president to pull back from an agreement to establish diplomatic ties with Turkey and reopen the common borders. Among the provisions of the agreement is the creation of a historical commission that would evaluate the history between the two countries. The Armenian genocide of 1915 to 1918 claimed the lives of about 1.2 million Armenians under the Ottoman Empire, which became the modern republic of Turkey, though the Turkish government disputes that genocide took place.
