Turkey is extremely disturbed over Slovakian Supreme Court Chairman Štefan Harabin’s recent statement that if any Turkish official dares to deny in Slovakia the fact of the Armenian Genocide, he/she will be immediately sentenced to up to five years in prison. 

The Turkish MFA is preparing to demand from the Slovakian MFA a clarification for the aforesaid statement, Hurriyet daily of Turkey informs.

It is noted that Slovakia’s Ambassador to Ankara will be summoned to the Turkish MFA, and the diplomat will be given a protest note and a formal demand to the Slovakian MFA to clarify the country’s Supreme Court Chairman’s statement.  

As Armenian News-NEWS.am informed earlier, Štefan Harabin stated that he places a huge importance to Slovakia’s Law on Criminalizing Armenian Genocide’s Denial, and reaffirmed that if any Turkish official—or anybody else—dare to deny in Slovakia the fact of the Armenian Genocide, they will be immediately sentenced to up to five years in prison.
