People from dissferent countries enter Turkey for trade in this photo.The Republican People’s Party (CHP) yesterday tabled a motion demanding a parliamentary investigation to determine and solve the problems of Armenian migrants living in Turkey.
In the justification of the motion, which was submitted to the Parliamentary Speaker’s Office with the signatures of CHP Istanbul deputy Sezgin Tanrıkulu and his colleagues, it was indicated that the migrants living in Turkey lived in harsh conditions that could result in death.
The justification also underlined the suicide case of Narine Mıkırtçiyan, an Armenian woman who moved to Istanbul for economic reasons. “We think there are many tragedies resembling the case of Narine Mıkırtçiyan,” it read. The justification also referred to Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan’s remarks in 2010 that, “in Turkey, there are about 100,000 Armenians who are not Turkish citizens.” “The government, which does not abstain from using Armenian migrants as a trump card, has to demonstrate a similar skill for reforming their living standards,” the motion read.
