Turkish MP Sirri Sureya Onder announced at a press conference in the Turkish Parliament that a great massacre of Armenians took place in 1915 in Turkey, which is called Genocide in all languages.

As the Turkish Radikal reports, he announced that he participated in the commemoration event of the Armenian Genocide organized in Taksim Square in Istanbul and he stressed that the genocide did happen in Turkey.
