STRONG TURKEY PARTY LEADER EITHER LIAR OR CRIMINAL, EXPERT SAYS
Nov 1 2010
Leader of Strong Turkey party Tuna Beklevic who claimed that he had
crossed the Armenian-Turkish border is either a liar or criminal who
just crossed a state border, Turkish studies expert Ruben Melkonyan
told the journalists today.
“Even if Strong Turkey members crossed the border they were in neutral
territory, thus they needed permission of the authorities. Citizens
cannot just easily cross the state border and appear in neutral
territory,” he noted. According to the expert, it once again
proves that this action was a “cheap propaganda” by Turkish
authorities. That is why the Turkish side has not officially responded
to this action so far.
As NEWS.am reported earlier, Turkish media spread information that
Tuna Beklevic with his party fellows crossed the Armenia-Turkey
border along the River Akhuryan and entered Armenia. However, later
Deputy Chief of Border Service, Russian Federal Security Service,
Colonel Andrey Guzeyev refuted the reports.
