Mexico Recognized the Armenian Genocide, and Turkey is Not Happy

« We call on the Mexican Senate to correct this misstep, instead of serving the agenda of some circles that try to create hostility from history »

Strong words from Turkey’s foreign ministry as they « reject and strongly condemn » Mexicos recognition of the Armenian genocide. On February 8th Mexicos senate adopted a resolution recognizing the Armenian genocide. Turkey oftentimes rejects any recognition of the Armenian genocide.

« Recognizing the 1915 events as ‘genocide’ is an invalid attempt to rewrite history with political motives » – The Turkish Foreign Ministry.
