YEREVAN (Yerevan)–Foreign ministry Hamlet Gasparian on Thursday–called Turkish press reports on a speech presented by an Armenian diplomat–simply "topsy-turvy."
Turkish media reported that Armenia’s ambassador to the European Union Vigen Chitechian–stated during a meeting of EU-Armenia cooperation commission in Strasbourg–that "the problem of the Armenian genocide was created by diaspora Armenia’s."
Gasparian explained that–as a rule–Ambassador Chitechian uses the phrase "the diaspora itself was created as a result of the Genocide." He added that this is yet another attempt by the Turkish press to mislead the international community into thinking that serious disagreemen’s exist between diaspora Armenia’s and those in Armenia.
"It is a worn-out Turkish trick meant for uninformed people," he added.
