Erdogan reacts to Biden’s mention of Armenian GenocideWednesday, April 27, 2022
In a televised address following a Cabinet meeting, Erdogan challenged Biden to “learn the history” concerning the Armenians, insisted that such statements were “provoking enmity” between the Turkish and Armenian people and maintained that the Armenian people would suffer the most from the “hypocrisy.”
Biden on Sunday issued a statement commemorating the 107th anniversary of the Armenian Genocide.
The U.S. president had first used the term “genocide” during last year’s anniversary, fulfilling a campaign promise. Past presidents had avoided that word.
