775) Turkish MP: Armenia should observe the U.N. resolution and quit the seized Azeri territories

Turkey wishes to have open border with Armenia, member of the BSEC PA committee on legal and political issues, member of Republican People’s Party (CHP) of Turkey Mehmet Sevigen told journalists.

In Mr. Sevigen's words, Turkey does everything depending on it to open the border with Armenia, but the latter should also take essential steps.

“Armenia should observe the U.N. resolution and quit the seized Azeri territories,’ Sevigen said.

When touching upon Turkey’s acknowledgement of the Armenian claims regarding the Ottoman Empire in 1915, Sevigen stated that the “events of 1915 were not genocide but so-called genocide.” “Armenia should surrender its claims for recognizing these events as genocide. Historians should deal with the issue. Turkey has opened all its archives of those times and invited all historians concerned. When everything clears up we will see that matters do not stand the same as politicians describe,” Sevigen said, reported IA Regnum.

More than 500.000 Turkish and Kurdish people were massacred by the Armenian nationalists during the First Wolrd War.
