Erdogan reminded of Armenian Genocide during G20 presser
President of Turkey Recep Tayyip Erdogan denied the Armenian Genocide after a question from a journalist of Armenian origin during a press conference at the G20 summit in Argentina.

“Turkey cannot be blamed of having committed a genocide against the Armenians," said Erdogan. "On the question of genocide, please let's leave the discussions to the Historians and let's listen to what the Historians have to say. This is not a part of our history and I can very confidently say that and we are ready to get involved in any discussion whatsoever,” added Erdogan.
