Press Release Regarding The Statement Issued By President Obama , 24.04.2010

Written statements issued regularly each year on the 24th of April by the Presidents of the United States has been repeated by President Obama this year as well.

We deeply regret this statement which reflects an incorrect and one-sided political perception.

The toughest enemy of the historical facts are subjective memory records. No nation has the right to impose its memory records on another nation.

Third counties neither have a right nor authority to judge the history of Turkish-Armenian relations with political motives.
