Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan criticized Arat Dink, son of Hrant Dink, chief editor of Turkish-Armenian Agos newspaper, who was murdered by Turkish nationalists.

Erdogan also accused Taraf newspaper of having pro-Armenian position.

Earlier in his column for Taraf newspaper Arat Dink wrote that Turkish PM called former Justice Minister Cemil Cicek “a suspect” in the murder of Hrant Dink.

Premier Erodgan responded to the article saying he never made such statement.

“I am criticizing the newspaper which published the article, an instrument in the hands of this child [Dink’s son],’ he said.

Turkish PM noted that they are trying to avoid influence of the Diaspora and expect moves from Armenia.

“However, unfortunately there is still pro-Armenian ideology in Turkey. They took on a role of Armenians’ defender,” he stressed.
