Erdogan made a statement similar to those forerunning Armenian genocide


Baku. Lachin Sultanova - APA. “Unfortunately, it’s not for the first time Turkish officials threaten deportation of Armenian immigrants. Similar statements forerun the Armenian genocide in 1915 and Armenian pogroms in Sumgait in 1988,” Foreign Minister Edward Nalbandian said during a news conference in Yerevan, APA reports quoting Armenian press. “Such statement damage the Armenian-Turkish dialogue. We are hopeful that Ankara will take a more realistic approach and will give up the language of blackmail, a non-civilized way to resolve problems,” the Minister said.
Turkey’s Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Tuesday 100 thousand illegal Armenian immigrants can be deported from the country.

“There are 170 thousand Armenians living in Turkey. 70 thousand of them are Turkish citizens. If necessary, I will tell the remaining 100 thousand to leave. I can do so because they are not Turkish citizens and I’m not obliged to keep them in my country,” Erdogan said.
