No: 113, 26 April 2023, Press Release Regarding the Unveiling of the “Nemesis Monument” in Yerevan, the Capital of Armenia

Republic Of Türkiye Ministry Of Foreign Affairs 26.04.2023

We strongly condemn the unveiling of the "Nemesis Monument" in Yerevan, dedicated to the perpetrators of assassinations against the Ottoman political and military leaders in the early 1920s, as well as the Azerbaijani officials of the time and even some Ottoman citizens of Armenian origin.

The unveiling of this shameful monument is a glorification of a bloody terrorist movement that led to the heinous terrorist attacks in which 31 of our diplomats and their family members were murdered.

The way in which this event has been presented in the Armenian media also reveals a distorted and unacceptable interpretation of history still kept in some minds.

Such provocative steps, which are incompatible with the spirit of the normalization process between Türkiye and Armenia, will in no way contribute to the efforts for establishment of lasting and sustainable peace and stability in the region. On the contrary, they will negatively affect the normalization process.
