Baku, Azerbaijan, Apr. 27
By Rufiz Hafizoglu - Trend:
By making a statement about the events of 1915, Russian President Vladimir Putin disappointed Ankara, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said before flying to Kuwait, TRT Haber TV channel reported April 27.
Erdogan said that before making such a statement, Russia should study its history.
Erdogan also said that Turkey is not ashamed of its history, as there was no "Armenian genocide" in the country's history.
Earlier, Russian President Vladimir Putin called the events of 1915 as "Armenian genocide".
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 "genocide" in the world, Armenians have achieved its recognition by the parliaments of some countries.
