At a memorial service on a hill-top above the capital Yerevan, the Armenian president, Serzh Sarkisian, and other officials have commemorated the 95th anniversary of the mass killings that Armenians call "the genocide".

It is not yet clear whether Armenia and Turkey will be able to revive their reconciliation process.

But after this year's remembrance of the past is over, it will soon be time again to think about the future.
