YEREVAN.- Hatred and intolerance against other nations is implanted in Turkey. So, even now Turkish children in schools are forced to say how great it is to be Turkish, director of Armenian Genocide Museum-Institute Hayk Demoyan said that during the Moscow-Yerevan space bridge on Wednesday.

Demoyan underscored that today’s Turkey is the follower of the Ottoman Empire and that it was created through genocides.

“The slogan of its creators was turkification of other nations,” Demoyan said pointing out the above mentioned genocides were a result of planned policy. Talking about Armenian-Turkish relations Demoyan stressed that Turkey still does not perceive the Armenia’s statehood.

Talking about the bill criminalizing denial of genocides, including Armenian Genocide Demoyan mentioned that those who are against the bill announce that the bill contradicts freedom of speech.

“On the contrary, where racism starts freedom of speech and freedom of expression end,” Demoyan concluded.
