Turkey summons US Ambassador
Turkey’s foreign ministry has summoned the U.S. Ambassador in Ankara to protest Joe Biden's political provocation - the U.S. decision to recognize the Armenians during the Ottoman Empire as “genocide.”
As France 24 reports, Deputy Foreign Minister Sedat Onal met with David Satterfield late Saturday to express Ankara’a strong condemnation. “The statement does not have legal ground in terms of international law and has hurt the Turkish people, opening a wound that’s hard to fix in our relations,” the ministry said.
