Turkey classic example of dictatorship at state level
/PanARMENIAN.Net/ Turkey is a classic example of dictatorship at state level, Armenian National Assembly Vice Speaker Vahan Hovhannisian said during The Armenian-Turkish Relations: Problems and Prospects extended parliamentary hearings.“It’s impossible to hold dialogue with a country, whose leaders keep on distorting the history. As long as Talaat pasha, Enver pasha and Jemal pasha are Turkey’s national heroes, the Turkish-Armenian relations will not be normalized. It such a Turkey joints the EU, it will be defeat for Armenia and collapse for Europe,” he said. “The main purpose of the hearings is to ‘break’ the wall between the two nations erected by the Turkish government. We should publish the minutes of the hearings and send them to the Turkish parliament. This move can give start to a public dialogue,” Mr Hovhannisian said.
