Turkish envoy to Slovakia factually recognized Genocide – FAAE

PanARMENIAN.Net - Turkish Ambassador to Slovakia Gulhan Ulutekin has factually recognized the Armenian Genocide.

Earlier, the president of the Forum of Armenian Associations of Europe (FAAE) Ashot Grigorian instigated a criminal case against the envoy over denial of the Armenian Genocide.

“When taken to police station, Ms. Ulutekin stated than she didn’t deny the Genocide. Which, factually, means that she recognized it,” Grigorian told a news conference.

According to him, the 2009 Slovak law on criminalization of the denial of genocides and Fascist regime crimes served as grounds for the suit.
