Turkey’s rude remarks deepen chasm with int’l community: FM

PanARMENIAN.Net - Russian State Duma’s new statement on the Genocide is an expression of solidarity with the people of Armenia. The Genocide is not only a crime against the Armenian nation, it’s a crime against humanity, with its recognition among key tasks of the international community, Foreign Minister said.

In his statement, Edward Nalbandian thanked Russia for its objective and consistent position on one of the greatest tragedies in the history of humanity.

The Foreign Minister reminded that back on May 24, 1915, Russia, jointly with France and Great Britain issued a statement condemning the Armenian massacres in the Ottoman Empire and describing them as a crime against humanity and civilization.

“Now, when the whole world is commemorating the Genocide victims, with many states supporting the people of Armenia and calling Turkey to face its history, Ankara voices rude and provoking remarks, opposing itself to the international community. As a result, the policy of denialism deepens the chasm between Turkey and the international community,” Nalbandian stressed.
