APA reports quoting Turkish media that parliamentarians from opposition parties Republican People’s Party (CHP) and National Movement Party (MHP) offered to make a statement condemning the persons supporting the campaign. Pro-Kurdish Democratic Society Party (DTP) objected to it.

Following the discussions, decision was made on the parliamentarians’ condemning the apology campaign by collecting signatures individually. Member of MHP, parliamentarian Janan Aritman called the organizers of the campaign betrayers.
“The false scientists signing it should apology to Turkey,” he said.
Aritman also criticized President Abdullah Gul’s attitude towards the campaign. Saying that Abdullah Gul was encouraged by his visit to Armenia, Aritman dropped a hint that the president’s mother was Armenian.
“We see that the president supports this campaign. Abdullah Gul should be the president of the whole Turkish nation, not of his ethnic origin. Investigate the ethnic origin of the president’s mother, and you will see,” he said.

Some claim in Turkey that Abdullah Gul’s mother was born to an Armenian-origin family from Kayseri and father was an Arab moved to Kayseri.
