The Turkish Foreign Ministry has strongly refuted the comments on
Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan made by famous French
singer of Armenian origin, Charles Aznavour.
Aznavour, who also serves as Armenia's ambassador to Switzerland, had
said during a program broadcasted on Swiss television that Erdoğan had
said in the past that "he hated Armenians and Greeks."
Foreign Ministry spokesman Levent Gümrükçü said in a written statement
that they did not understand where Azanvour's claim arose from. "We
strongly refute this unfounded and meaningless accusation. We have
insistingly emphasized that it is wrong to revive animosity from
history," the statement read.
The Foreign Ministry also added that they welcomed Aznavour's
proposals for the normalization of relations between Armenia and
Turkey. "Even though we don't agree with some of his diagnosis, we
believe that the right method to create a common future passes through
dialogue and empathy and works on memory," the Foreign Ministry added.
