ANCA EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR ARAM HAMPARIAN'S STATEMENT ON TURKISH PRIME MINISTER ERDOGAN'S REMARKS REGARDING APRIL 24TH

WASHINGTON, DC - Armenian National Committee of America Executive Director Aram Hamparian issued the following statement regarding Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan's public remarks on the "events of 1915."

"Increasingly isolated internationally, Ankara is repackaging its genocide denials."

"Prime Minister Erdogan, in his statement today, attempts, in vain, to escape responsibility for the Armenian Genocide, by somehow downgrading this still unpunished international crime to the level of a simple, unresolved bilateral conflict. Neither the facts nor any of the world's commonly accepted codes of law or morality support this twisted view."

"The fact remains that, as this cold-hearted and cynical ploy so plainly demonstrates, Turkey is, today, escalating its denial of truth and obstruction of justice for the Armenian Genocide."
