No: 134, 25 April 2015, Press Release Regarding the Decision Adopted by the Bulgarian Parliament Regarding the Events of 1915

The decision adopted by the Bulgarian Parliament on 24th of April 2015 regarding the events of 1915, initiated by the ultra-nationalist, xenophobic, racist ATAKA Party, which is also against the Euro-Atlantic values, demonstrates an antagonistic attitude towards Turkey. Turkey rejects this slander against its history.

Our neighbor Bulgaria's Parliament has unfortunately been taken hostage by the extremist elements within itself, by ignoring the humanitarian and concrete initiatives that Turkey has taken in this historical issue.

No doubt, this decision will negatively affect Turkey- Bulgaria relations.
These views have also been expressed to Bulgaria's Ambassador to Ankara, who has been invited to our Ministry today.
