No: 132, 26 Nisan 2017, Press Release Regarding The Resolution Adopted By The Chamber Of Deputies Of The Czech Republic Onthe Events Of 1915 And The Statement Made By President Zeman On The Same Issue

Republic Of Turkey Ministry Of Foreign Affairs 27.04.2017
We condemn and reject in the strongest terms the resolution adopted by the Chamber of Deputies of the Parliament of the Czech Republic on 25 April 2017.

We are also disappointed by President Zeman’s letter of 24 April 2017 addressed to the Armenian diaspora in his country with regard to the events of 1915, as it includes serious inconsistencies.

President Zeman, while stating in his letter that history should not be interpreted bypoliticans, and exposing the fact that politicians abuse history for their political interests, and that the past should first and foremost be analysed and interpreted by historians; contradicts his own words as he makes political assessments with regard to the events of 1915.

Our reaction to these political actions that openly contradict historical facts as well as the basic tenets of law has been conveyed to the Ambassador of the Czech Republic to Ankara.
