Turkey’s PM Ahmet Davutoglu declared that Russian President’s statement will be followed by corresponding diplomatic actions.

Turkey’s PM referred to the question of Russian President’s using the word ‘genocide,’ the Turkish newspaper Ahaber reports. The PM said he has already spoken to FM Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu and corresponding diplomatic initiatives will follow.  

“The fact that Russia’s and France’s presidents will be in Armenia undermines the Minsk Group impartiality,” Davutoglu declared.

In his statement Putin noted that April 24, 1915 is a mournful anniversary related to Armenian Genocide, “one the most horrible and tragic events in human history.”
