No: 113, 24 April 2019, Press Release Regarding The Statement By The U.s. President Donald Trump On The Events Of 1915

Republic Of Turkey Ministry Of Foreign Affairs 24.04.2019

We reject U.S. President Donald Trump’s statement dated 24 April 2019 with regard to the events of 1915.

This statement, based on the subjective narrative fictionalized by Armenians, is of no worth. Distortion of history for domestic political considerations can never be accepted.

We remind pains of more than 500 thousand Muslims slaughtered by Armenian rebels in the same period and invite President Trump to be fair.

Turkey is still behind its proposal to establish a Joint Historical Commission to shed light on all aspects of the events that took place 104 years ago.

Radical Armenians, who want to ensure their responsibilities in the events of 1915 are overlooked, do not show the courage to respond positively to this proposal.

On this occasion, we commemorate with respect Muslims, Christians, Jews, and all other Ottoman communities who lost their lives during the collapse of the Ottoman Empire.
