    Breaking: Turkey vows to respond in time to Biden’s ‘outrageous’ recognition of Armenian genocide

    Turkey vows to respond in time to Biden’s ‘outrageous’ recognition of Armenian genocide.

    According to Press TV, Turkey has vowed to respond in time to the “outrageous” declaration by US President Joe Biden officially recognizing as “genocide” the massacres of Armenians in the Ottoman Empire more than a century ago.

    Biden on Saturday became the first American president to proclaim formal recognition of the politically motivated “Armenian genocide,” honoring all those Armenians who “perished in the genocide that began 106 years ago today” during World War I.

    The unprecedented declaration infuriated Ankara, prompting Turkish officials to swiftly condemn Biden’s statement.

    On Sunday, Ibrahim Kalin, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s Spokesman and adviser lambasted the statement as “simply outrageous.”

    “There will be a reaction of different forms and kinds and degrees in coming days and months,” Kalin said in an interview with Reuters.

    He did not specify whether the Turkish government would restrict the US access to the Incirlik Airbase in southern Turkey, which has been used to support the US-led international coalition purportedly fighting against the Daesh Takfiri terrorist group in Syria and Iraq, or other measures it may take.

    “At a time and place that we consider to be appropriate, we will continue to respond to this very unfortunate unfair statement,” Kalin further said, adding that Erdogan would address the issue after a cabinet meeting on Monday.

    Ankara acknowledges that many Armenians living in the Ottoman Empire were killed in clashes with Ottoman forces during the Great War, but denies that the killings were systematically orchestrated and constitute genocide. 

    Turkey also disputes the number of those killed, saying the toll has been inflated. It further argues that such accusations do not take into account the number of Turkish deaths during the conflict.

    For decades, measures recognizing the Armenian genocide stalled in the US Congress and most American presidents have refused to officially describe the 1915 events as genocide, fearing relations with Turkey could be severely strained.
