Turkey ready to face history records on Armenian claims of genocide

Bishkek (AKIpress) - Cemil Çiçek Turkey is ready to face its history records, Speaker of the Turkish Parliament Cemil Çiçek said Tuesday speaking on Armenian claims of genocide, Trend reported.

“We did not have a criminal record until now,” Çiçek said during the meeting with Canadian Speaker of the House of Commons, Andrew Scheer, in Ankara adding that Turkey is ready to accept the conclusions of a Joint History Commission with Armenia.

“The biggest insult and the biggest disrespect that can be done to a society is accusing them of committing genocide, though it is not real,” Cemil Çiçek said adding that the acceptance of 1915 events by Canadian Parliament as genocide has hurt Turkey.

He explained that in the Ottoman empire in 1915, allied forces was attempting to snatch the Turkish lands and as a result both Armenian and Turk populations suffered. “That has nothing to do with genocide according to international law,” he stressed.

Andrew Scheer said that Turkey's call for a “Joint History Commission” with Armenia to address the 1915 events is positive.

Armenia claims that the predecessor of modern Turkey, the Ottoman Empire allegedly carried out genocide against the Armenians living in Anadolu in 1915. Armenians have achieved recognition of the genocide by the parliaments of several countries.
