Özet

Turco-American relationship had a long history with cordial relations. Diplomatic relations that were severed in 1917 with the entrance of US into the World War could be reestablished only in 1927. One of the major factors in this delay was the anti-Turkish activities undertaken by Armenians living in US. The figure of Vahan Cardashian (Kardasyan) who functioned almost as a one-man lobby against Turkey until 1934 is especially worthy of attention.
