Azerbaijan, Baku / Т corr S. Ilhamghizi / Muzaffar Gulyurd, the Deputy from the ruling party of Turkey, said that that the Parliament of Turkey will officially recognize the genocide of the Azeri people and the tragic events in Khojali in near future.
The Turkish MP took part in the events dedicated to the Genocide Day of the Azerbaijanis (31 March) in Baku and promised that he will raise the issue on the recognition of the genocide by Turkey at the Parliament. "I will speak at the Parliament on the events and suggest recognizing the genocide. The Parliament will make a decision on the issue at the time fixed by the Leaders of the Party," Gulyurd added.
Turkey does not fear to recognize the genocide at the Governmental level. "We also experienced similar genocides and always state that the fact on the Armenian's genocide by the Turkish people is false. During the official meeting in different countries we speak on the Azeri people's genocide committed by the Armenians in 1918, as well as Khojali genocide," the MP noted.
