The Turkish Foreign Ministry said the resolution of the Parliament urging Turkey to recognize Armenian genocide is "ridiculous" and could damage relations between Ankara and the EU.
the resolution, adopted by the full European Parliament , "is ridiculous and reproduces literally cliches propaganda of Armenia against Turkey, "said the Ministry in a note that was broadcast by the NTV station, quoted by EFE today.
the European Parliament" exhibits selective and unilateral stance events 1915, contrary to its own values, and can damage relations between Turkey and the European Union, besides being far from bringing a solution to Turkey and Armenia, "advirte critically on the resolution.
" we do not take seriously those who accepted this text, which slaughters history and rights, "the Turkish statement.
for the Turkish government, the resolution" repeated errors not agree with international law the time and exceed the jurisdiction "of the European Parliament, expressed in the note.
Meanwhile, the Turkish Deputy Prime Minister Yalçın Akdogan reacted against the decision by a message posted on his Twitter account.
"you can not take seriously this talk. If the European Parliament had a wise vision, let the historical nonsense and would handle what happens in our day, "said Akdogan.
Anticipating this text, the Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan , he had previously stated that "whatever the decision of the European Parliament on the claims by the Armenian genocide, come in one ear and out the other, because it is not possible for Turkey to accept such a crime." In addition had stressed that his government acts with "generosity by not deporting 100,000 undocumented immigrants (Armenian), but could if he wanted."
the repudiation of the Turkish government is the same that caused the statements of Pope Francisco last Sunday, when he said that the Armenian was "the first genocide of the twentieth century" and called on all countries in the world to recognize it.
His words provoked the ire of Erdogan, who he said the pontiff said "stupidities", and several members of his government. The last to attack the Pope was the Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu, who accused him of "joining a conspiracy" driven by an "evil front."
