No: 68, 24 April 2024, Regarding the Statements by Authorities of Some Countries

Republic Of Türkiye Ministry Of Foreign Affairs 24.04.2024

We reject the one-sided statements about the events of 1915 that have been made to satisfy certain radical circles.

These statements, which distort the historical facts, are also contrary to international law. The European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) has clearly underlined that the events of 1915 are a legitimate subject of debate.

These biased and partial statements about history undermine the reconciliation efforts between the two communities, and encourage radical groups to commit hate crimes.

We call on all parties to support our proposal for a Joint Historical Commission and the normalisation process that has been initiated with Armenia.
