More than a century after the massacre and genocide of Armenians by the Ottoman regime, the Turkish government, as the heir to the Ottoman Empire, still denies this crime and is not ready to accept the consequences of this massacre and seek forgiveness from the survivors.

Today, in disbelief, I read a tweet on the Turkish Ministry of Defense’s Twitter account commemorating the Turks who were killed by Armenians in 1915.

At the same time, Turkish Defense Minister Khulusi Akar, in a video message, about the massacre of Armenians in 1915 said: “Pointing to the facts revealed by our historians about the 1915 events and the US archives, “There is no expression of genocide in any way. The event is distorted by political efforts. Our history is clean, we have nothing to be ashamed of.”

In the last four years, large areas of Kurdistan have been occupied by his forces, and hundreds of thousands of Afrin, Sarekani and Gri Sepi residents in Syrian Kurdistan have been forced to flee their cities, and the policy of demographic change has been effectively implemented in these areas.

The Turkish military, also under the direct command of Khulusi Akar, has occupied large areas of northern Iraq and has reportedly used chemical weapons in some of the attacks.

The killing of Kurds by the Turkish Islamist regime and previous Turkish regimes is in fact a continuation of the massacre of Armenians.

If the world had unanimously recognized the massacre of Armenians and Kurds as genocide, today the Turkish authorities would not have dared to distort history on the one hand, and on the other hand they could never have continued the massacre, war crimes and genocide of the Kurdish people.

Cherish the memory of all Armenians and Kurds who have fallen victim to the belligerent and denialist policies of the Ottoman and Turkish governments.
