The statements in question are the product of a pathetic mentality proving that the relations and solidarity betweenGreece and Armenia is built upon a joint hostility and slander language directed against the Turkish identity.

Turkey and the Turkish people will never give credit to those bringing to the fore at every opportunity a dictum of history which is unlawful, disconnected with realities, one-sided and obsessive.
