Charles Aznavour has voiced indignation over the Turkish denial of the Armenian Genocide and has appealed to Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.
The Turkish President has been invited to Armenia to April 24, 2015, the anniversary of the massacres of Armenians in 1915. “He has not yet responded. But if he goes, I’ll go with him,” the singer said in an interview with RTS.
Charles Aznavour says he hopes for a reconciliation between Armenians and Turks “before dying.”
He complained vehemently of the Turks, who deny the suffering of the Armenian people. “You have to hate the deniers,” he said.
Interviewed on the occasion of his 90th birthday and album announced for the occasion, Charles Aznavour also talked about his 81-year career on stage.
Aznavour, who toured the world for 90 years, hopes to become “the first centenary singer on stage.” “Come interview me for my 100 years, May 24, 2024,” he told the RTS.
