Danny Ayalon and Israeli Ambassador Shmuel Meirom stressed that Israel
never denied the “tragic events” and “mass murder” of Armenians during
the World War I, however, this issue has become political and Israel
doesn’t wish to become a party to the confrontation between Armenia
and Turkey on this important issue.”

question about Israeli-Turkish relations.
