Armenians in Turkey want PM Erdogan to be awarded Nobel Prize
Bedros Sirinoglu, an official of the Armenian community in Turkey, said that Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s call for reconciliation will be worthy of a Nobel Prize, should the two peoples make peace, RIA Novosti reports.
The official reminded that Erdogan had become the first Turkish politician to express condolences to the Armenian community and promise the return of Armenian offspring.
Turkish columnist Markar Yesayan and Head of the Armenian University Group for Tolerance Jerry Khimiryan and Constantinople Patriarch Aram Ateshyan heading the Armenian Apostolic Church approved the idea.
On April 23, 2014, Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan expressed condolences to the grandchildren of Armenians killed in the early 20th century.
