Region:World News, Armenia, Turkey
YEREVAN. – Turkey will not break off relations with the Vatican even
after the Holy Mass which the Pope offered.
The head of the Political Affairs Bureau and the Armenian Cause
Office of the Armenian Revolutionary Federation (ARF) Dashnaktsutyun
Party, Giro Manoyan, stated the aforementioned at a press conference
“I don’t think Turkey will break off economic and military relations
with any state. I believe everything will fall [back] into place in
two or three months,” Manoyan said, and added: “We have been witness
to this numerous times.”
The ARF official also noted that Turkey does everything solely for
its own interests.
As reported earlier, during the aforesaid mass, which was devoted to
the victims of the Armenian Genocide, and which was offered on April
12 at the St. Peter’s Basilica in the Vatican, Pope Francis had stated
that the Armenians had become the victims of the first genocide in the
20th century, and simply because of their ethnicity. And immediately
after this mass, Turkey had recalled its ambassador to the Vatican.
