Podcast: Turkish parties show inability to come to terms with Armenian issue


Here is my latest podcast for Ahval’s Turkey Trends with Dr Aykan Erdmir on how Turkish parties show inability to come to terms with Armenian issue.

The Turkish Foreign Ministry has for decades spent time and energy to fight against similar decisions across the world. Several countries have moved towards recognition in the last decade, joining the growing chorus of calling the 1915 events a genocide. This can in part be attributed to decades of activism by Armenian diaspora communities worldwide, Erdemir said. There is an absolute lack of empathy in an average Turk for the enormous pain Armenian communities and individuals suffered, he said. In his view, this denial is more concerning than what word they would use to describe the events of 1915.
