Netherlands: Nebahat Albayrak Says She Never Recognized Armenian Genocide

PanARMENIAN.Net - Nebahat Albayrak, a member of the Dutch parliament of Turkish origin and the number two candidate of the Labor Party for next month's elections, claimed over the weekend that she never said she acknowledged the Armenian Genocide, contrary to earlier news reports that said she admitted the fact of the Genocide.  "I'm not a politician that will trample my identity. I've always defended the same views everywhere with regard to the Genocide," she said. To remind, after the main Dutch parties removed three Turkish candidates from their electoral lists, in an interview with HP/De Tijd magazine Albayrak said she backed the parliamentary motion describing the killings of Armenians as genocide, adding that the issue needs to be investigated.
