Interim Government Urges Turkey to Confess Crimes Committed During Armenian Genocide


In commemoration of the Armenian genocide, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation of the Libyan Interim Government said that Turkey must apologise for the crimes it committed against the Armenian people and that it should compensate Armenia for the massacres that “will not be forgotten in the memory of Armenians and the international community”.

In a statement issued on Sunday, the Ministry condemned the “inhumane crime” carried out by Turkey against the Armenian people and called on all countries to condemn this genocide.

The Ministry also added that the Turkish government continues to commit crimes globally by blatantly interfering in the internal affairs of other countries.

The statement stressed that crimes committed by Turkey in Libya include the bombing of civilian areas in Tarhuna on Friday with missiles and drones, the killing of civilians, the targeted destruction of convoys carrying food and medical aid, as well as its role in importing Syrian fighters to Libya and its support for known extremists in Libya.

It followed by saying that Turkish crimes in Libya “are to be added to the crimes committed against other populations across the world that reflect Erdogan’s arrogance and his disregard for international laws”.
