Baku, Azerbaijan, Nov.27
By Rufiz Hafizoglu - Trend:
Armenia will not be able to deceive the world with is activities on achieving the recognition of the 1915 events as "Armenian genocide", Anadolu agency quoted the chairman of Turkey's Grand National Assembly (parliament) Cemil Cicek as saying on Nov.27.
He said that in recent times, Armenians and the Armenian lobby have intensified their efforts to achieve the recognition of the 1915 events by the parliaments of the world countries as "Armenian genocide".
Cicek added that Turkey is ready to open the archives and reinvestigate the 1915 events.
Armenia and the Armenian lobby claim that Turkey's predecessor the Ottoman Empire allegedly carried out "genocide" against the Armenians living in Anatolia in 1915. Turkey in turn has always denied "the genocide" took place.
While strengthening the efforts to promote the so-called "genocide" in the world, Armenians have achieved its recognition by the parliaments of some countries.
Although Turkey has repeatedly proposed to create an independent commission to investigate the events of 1915, Armenia continues to reject this proposal.
