Turkish opposition slams French move on events of 1915
ANKARA – Anadolu Agency
"Solving the problems between Armenia and Turkey is possible through dialogue between them, not through the intervention of a third country crossing the line," he said on Twitter.
Turkey's position on the events of 1915 is that the deaths of Armenians in eastern Anatolia took place when some sided with invading Russians and revolted against Ottoman forces. A subsequent relocation of Armenians resulted in numerous casualties.
Turkey objects to the presentation of the incidents as "genocide" but describes the 1915 events as a tragedy in which both sides suffered casualties.
