“WE REJECT ATTEMPTS TO MAKE THESE PAINS AS POLITICAL MATERIAL”

One-sided and selective approaches that have no other purpose than to attract the hostility of history are morally problematic and politically malicious. A humanitarian and conscientious stance requires commemorating all the suffering experienced at that time, regardless of any ethnic or religious discrimination. Turkey respectfully commemorates the sufferings of the entire Ottoman population, including the Armenians. We reject attempts to use this pain as political material.

Turkey is of the view that controversial periods of history such as the events of 1915 should be studied without prejudice, within the framework of scientific and legal principles, and a correct memory should be achieved. With this in mind, Turkey proposed the creation of a joint historical commission and opened its archives.

Turkey strives for peace and stability to prevail in its region and in the world, and the spirit of cooperation is at the forefront. The normalization initiative initiated with Armenia is another manifestation of this agreement.”
