Turkey foreign ministry summoned the U.S. ambassador over genocide announcement


Turkey’s foreign ministry has brought the U.S. diplomat in Ankara to fight the U.S. choice to stamp the extradition and executing of Armenians during the Ottoman Empire as “genocide.”

Deputy Foreign Minister Sedat Onal met with David Satterfield late Saturday to communicate Ankara’s solid judgment. “The assertion doesn’t have legitimate ground regarding international law and has harmed the Turkish people, opening an injury that is difficult to fix in our relations,” the ministry said.

On Saturday, U.S. President Joe Biden finished a mission guarantee to perceive the occasions that started in 1915 and murdered an expected 1.5 million Ottoman Armenians as genocide. The assertion was painstakingly made to say the deportations, slaughters and death walks occurred in the Ottoman Empire. “We see that torment. We attest the set of experiences. We do this not to project fault but rather to guarantee that what happened is rarely rehashed,” it said.

The White House announcement quickly provoked explanations of judgment from Turkish officials, albeit Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan is yet to address the issue.

Turkey dismisses the utilization of the word, saying the two Turks and Armenians were executed in the World War I-period battling, and has required a joint history commission to research. For quite a long time, American presidents have abstained from utilizing “genocide” to depict what Armenians call Meds Yeghern, or the Great Crime.

The announcement comes as Turkish-American relations suffer from a host of issues. The U.S. has sanctioned Turkish defense officials and kicked Turkey out of a fighter jet program after the NATO member bought the Russian-made S400 defense system. Ankara is frustrated by Washington’s support of Syrian Kurdish fighters linked to an insurgency that Turkey has fought for decades. Turkey has also demanded the extradition of Fethullah Gulen, a Turkish cleric accused of orchestrating a bloody coup attempt against Erdogan’s government in 2016. Gulen lives in the U.S. and denies involvement.

Erdogan and Biden talked on the telephone Friday interestingly since the U.S. decisions.
