European Parliament acts in interests of Armenian lobby – Turkish opposition
Baku, Azerbaijan, Apr. 19
By Rufiz Hafizoglu - Trend:
The European Parliament (EP) acts in the interests of the Armenian lobby by calling Turkey to recognize the events of 1915 as the "Armenian genocide," said Devlet Bahceli, chairman of Turkey's Nationalist Movement Party.
This call has no meaning since there was not only the "Armenian genocide" but also any genocide towards other nations, noted Bahceli.
On Apr. 14, the EP called on Turkey to recognize the events of 1915 as the "Armenian genocide".
Armenia and the Armenian lobby claim that Turkey's predecessor, the Ottoman Empire, committed the so-called genocide against Armenians living in Anatolia in 1915.
While strengthening the propaganda of "genocide" in the world, Armenians achieved its recognition by parliaments of some countries.
