Cemil Cicek to Finland Parliament Speaker Eero Heinaluoma: Armenian Issue Poisons Our Relations –
The Armenian issue is one of the main issues that poisons our relations with other countries, Turkish Parliament Speaker Cemil Çiçek said on Thursday in a press conference with visiting Finland Parliament Speaker Eero Heinaluoma.
“One of the biggest slanders to a country is the baseless allegations of carrying out a masacre,” said Çiçek on the Armenian issue.
Çiçek pointed out that Turkey is co-operating in a joint commission of Turkish, Armenian and international historians for research into the 1915 incidents, and he added, “We are ready to confront our history.”
