Töre condemns Biden and Anastasiadis statements
Parliamentary Speaker Zorlu Töre described as unfortunate the statements made by the US President Joe Biden and Greek Cypriot leader Nicos Anastasiades regarding the events of April 24, 1915.
Töre stated that when you look at the sufferings and genocides in history, the countries with the darkest past are the USA, Greece and Armenia.
Issuing a written statement the Parliamentary Speaker Töre, stated that the so-called Armenian genocide has no historical documentation or legal basis.
He also noted that due to the initiatives of Armenian lobbies, pressure from radical Armenian circles and anti-Turkiye groups, some countries recognized the so-called genocide and supported the Armenian allegations.
Pointing out that every year on the 24th of April marches are held in Yerevan to denounce the so called genocide and the Turkish and Azerbaijani flags are burned, Töre noted that there are documents that prove the genocides that took place in various regions of Eastern Anatolia and in Karabakh 30 years ago.
Emphasizing that the Turkish nation has a history to be proud of, Töre said “We wish western states, especially the USA, stop ignoring the genocide committed by the Greek Cypriots in Cyprus and recognize historical facts”.
“They are trying to make us take a step back in matters where we are certainly in the right, but we will never give up and take a step back. Together with our homeland, we will continue to defend the just cause of the Turkish Cypriots before the international community” stated Töre.
