Cavusoglu flashes Grey Wolves sign to Armenian protesters in Uruguay

Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu made the gesture of the nationalist Gray Wolves organization to demonstrators from the Armenian community in Uruguay who were marching the day before the 107th anniversary of the Armenian Genocide, the Armenian National Committee of Uruguay reports.

Cavusoglu was leaving the newly inaugurated Turkish embassy in the Uruguayan capital, where he started his Latin America visit that will continue until April 29.

The Grey Wolves, an international organization, is seen as allied to Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

The group was officially  disbanded in France in November 2020 after defacing the Armenian Genocide memorial in Lyon.

Politicians in Germany have repeatedly called on the government to follow the suit and ban the group in the country.
