Speaking at the Peace Summit in Istanbul, commemorating the 100th anniversary of the Battle of Gallipoli, Turkish President Recep Tayyop Erdogan once again denied the Armenian Genocide.
On the eve of the day marking the centenary of the Ottoman massacres of Armenians, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said his nation’s ancestors never committed genocide.
“Armenian allegations on events in 1915 are baseless and groundless,” he said.
Erdogan said, he will be giving a ‘friendship message’ tomorrow, and added that “hostile attitudes based on Armenian allegations are wrong.”
The Turkish President reminded that tomorrow there will be a commemoration ceremony at the Armenian Patriarchate and he will participate with a letter.
Erdogan also accused European nations of indifference toward refugees and wanting migrants drown at sea.
