Turkey accuses Armenians of not seeking truth over 1915

Turkey’s president says Armenians pressing Turkey to recognize the century-old massacres of Armenians as genocide are not looking for the truth but to score points against his country, the Associated Press reports.

Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Thursday Armenians had rejected numerous Turkish calls for joint research to document precisely what happened.

Erdogan said: “Their aim is not to search for the truth, but to attack Turkey and cause it harm.”

Armenians mark the centenary of the killings on April 24.
