No: 111, 24 April 2023, Press Release Regarding the Statements Made by the Government Officials of Some Countries on April 24, 2023

Republic Of Türkiye Ministry Of Foreign Affairs 24.04.2023

The unfortunate statements that are incompatible with historical facts and international law regarding the events of 1915 are futile efforts aimed at rewriting history for political motives.

It should not be forgotten that 1915 events cannot be defined according to politicians’ personal agendas and their domestic political considerations. Such an approach can only lead to distortion of history. Those who insist on this biased approach will go down in history as worthless opportunist politicians.

We reject these statements, which we consider null and void, and condemn in the strongest terms those who persist in this mistake. Türkiye does not need to be lectured about its own history by anyone.

We urge these circles who seek to derive animosity from history for shallow political considerations to support our Joint History Commission proposal, and the regional peace and cooperation efforts led by our country instead of repeating such grave mistakes.

Atatürk
