Armenians to pay for US blackmail on Ankara

2010-03-17 23:36

5591.jpegTurkish PM Recep Tayyip Erdogan promised to deport 100 thousand Armenian migrants from the country as retaliation for the genocide resolution. Turks call Yerevan to "calm down" Armenian diaspora that helps the USA pressurize Ankara threatening to acknowledge massacre of Armenians in the Ottoman Empire in 1915. Well, a creeping genocide is better than a bloody sort-out.

Ankara now knows the way to take revenge for approval of the genocide resolution by the US congressional committee on March 4. Erdogan threatens to deport Armenians without Turkish citizenship from the country.


"There are 170 thousand Armenians living in my country with only 70 thousand being Turkish citizens. Tomorrow I will ask these 100 thousand that we are tolerating now, to leave the country, if needed. I will do it because they are not my citizens and I don't have to keep them in my country", - the Prime Minister stated.

He explains he will do it unless the Armenian diaspora stops dictating its will to Armenia, doing political damage to their motherland. As we know, Turkey agreed to the opening of the joint border. What is left to do now is ratify the protocols in parliament. If at this crucial point the United States, Turkey's strategic partner, acknowledge genocide, the Armenian-Turkish negotiating process will be immediately ruined.

"Turkey pursues and will pursue the "no-problem-with-neighbors" policy. However to the hand we offer there is a fist we see, there's nothing we can do about it", - Erdogan explained figuratively.

He was speaking in Great Britain encouraged by the guarantees of Justice Secretary Jack Straw that the English parliament would not adopt a prepared law draft on genocide of Armenians. As Straw says, the initiative is backed by one deputy from the House of Commons only.

In the meantime, on March 11 the Swedish parliament adopted the resolution forcing Turkish ambassador to go back home for advice. Spanish parliament decided to add a similar law draft to the session agenda.

Over 20 countries recognized the fact of genocide of 1,500 Armenians during WW1. Ankara thinks the figures are exaggerated insisting on historical investigation of this version together with Armenian and independent experts. Turkey is not afraid to stain reputation, there is a fear that Armenia will launch territorial claims that reconsideration of history can bring about.
