Turkey has nothing to learn from French politicians - Aksoy
Turkey has nothing to learn from arrogant French politicians who do not have a basic knowledge of history, said Hami Aksoy, the Turkish Foreign Ministry spokesman, AzVision.az reports citing Turkish media.
"Despite this, French President Macron, ignoring historical facts, as well as decisions of the European Court of Human Rights and the Constitutional Court of France, is trying to fulfill the promise in order to get the votes of Armenian voters," said Aksoy
The representative of the Foreign Ministry said that Turkey attaches great importance to the investigation of these events and the creation of a joint commission for this.
"We have nothing to learn from the arrogant French politicians who do not have a basic knowledge of history and are responsible for the massacres in Algeria, as well as the genocide in Rwanda," added Aksoy.
Earlier French President Macron called the events of 1915 as "the genocide of Armenians" and "a crime against humanity."
