Ankara Slams Trump’s Statement on Armenian Genocide as “Disinformation”

________________________

On Thursday, US President Trump commemorated the anniversary of the start of the Armenian genocide in a statement released by the White House, saying that the “Meds Yeghern”, a term used by Armenians to describe the 1915 events, was one of the worst atrocities in the history of the 20th century. The Turkish Ministry of Foreign Affairs said in a statement:

We consider that the disinformation and false definitions contained in US President Trump’s written statement of 24 April 2017 regarding the 1915 events came from information pollution created over the years by some Armenian circles in the USA by means of propaganda. President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan attended the ceremony to commemorate the event at the Armenian Patriarchate of Istanbul on Monday. We expect that the new US Administration wouldn’t take credence in the one-sided historical narrative of these circles, known for their tendency to violence and hate speech, but that it should adopt an approach that takes into consideration the sufferings of all sides.

The Ottoman authorities killed about 1.5 million Armenians between 1915 and 1923; they also expelled hundreds of thousands out of their territory. Turkey disputed the figure and denied the genocide, blaming the deaths on wartime irregularities (it occurred during World War I and the following Greco-Turkish War of 1918-23: editor).

They’re not in communion with us. They’re not Orthodox.

Hey, that’s Orthodoxy for ya… we fight with one another… sometimes, even deny each other the chalice… but we’re one people, one faith, one heart, one soul… for there’s only one Christ. Let those with open hearts and souls hear…

The Orthosphere lives. There IS a unity amongst all Orthodox, both Eastern and Oriental, despite the theological disputes. Look at the love between Russians and Armenians… need I add more?
