Turkey eclipses centenary of Armenian massacre by moving Gallipoli memorial

Change of date by Ankara, which leads to a clash of commemoration ceremonies, condemned as ‘indecent manoeuvre’

Turkey has been accused of belittling the imminent centenary of the Armenian genocide by advancing its Gallipoli commemorations to the same day.

The anniversary of the 1915 military operations on the Gallipoli peninsula has always been marked on 25 April, the day after commemorations of the massacre of more than 1 million Armenians in the Ottoman empire. This year, however, President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan has invited state leaders to join him in Gallipoli on 24 April.

“This is a very indecent political manoeuvre,” said Ohannes Kılıçdağı, a researcher and writer for Agos, an Armenian weekly. “It’s cheap politics to try to dissolve the pressure on Turkey in the year of the centennial by organising this event.

“Everybody knows that the two memorials around Gallipoli have been held on 18 March and 25 April every year.” :arrow: :arrow: :arrow:

Well what they do is up to them.

At the end of the day, the Armenian commemoration went ahead without a hitch.

World leaders always arrive in Gallipoli on the 24th or even 23rd. The memorial is in fact a Dawn Service.

You will be happy to note that Australian and NZ PM did not join Erdogan on the 24th. They met with him but chose to spend time visiting the Greek Orthodox Patriarch before spending the rest of the day with RAN and RNZN Sailors on board some frigates where they dined with the ship's crews on the eve.

Exactly.
The Anatolian state mistakenly assumes that it's all going to go away and the international community will turn a blind eye by way of some magic trick or persistence in denial.
They wish Cypriots would go away too, as if the atrocities on the island never happened, or it was some kind of 'noble' intervention to separate Cypriots from other Cypriots.

The RoC exists, and will continue to exist.
Armenia exists and will continue to exist.

More importantly, they are internationally recognised states. Unlike some trashcans round here.

What do you mean by "it" ?
What was "it" that was stolen from tcs?
Their 'brains'?
Their' humanity'?
Their 'decency'?
What was is "it" that was stolen ............. because they are a venomous lot right now.

what is it
venom is in your mind
venom is on your lips
venom is what you think
venom is what you speak
venom is what you eat
venom is what you excrete
venom is in your soul
venom is in your culture
venom will only destroy you

it which was stolen from the tcs is roc
it is for now yours
but not for long
only in name and totally bankrupt
in the ground
all around
here there and everywhere
you will find
the silent scream
of the innocent cypriot.
