Turkish leadership’s mentality unchanged 101 years after Armenian Genocide: Shavarsh Kocharyan


“Erdogan’s statement is a confession of the fact that the mentality of the Turkish leadership has not changed even after 101 years after the Armenian Genocide,” Armenian Deputy Foreign Minster Shavarsh Kocharyan said.

The comments come after Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said “Armenia is playing with fire”  and reminded about “more than 100,000 Armenians living in Turkey.”

“The Turkish President is trying to threaten Armenia, linking the dependence of the Armenians of Turkey on the country’s authorities to  his denialist statement released on April 24 this year,” Kocharyan said in comments to Tert.am.

“According to Erdogan, Azerbaijan is different from  neighboring countries and Ukraine. The only thing I have to add is that with its xenophobia, its mania of spreading a wave of instability and bloodshed, with its genocidal approaches, Azerbaijan is like and even identical with one country – Turkey,” the Deputy Foreign Minister said.

“Such convulsive statements coming from both Ankara and Baku are the expression of their horror of finding themselves intentionally isolated as a result of their racist policy,” Shavarsh Kocharyan concluded.
