ANKARA (Reuters) – Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan has urged his US counterpart Joe Biden to immediately reverse his claim that in 1915 the massacre of Armenians in the Ottoman Empire constituted genocide. The move, which he believes, has upset and weakened the bilateral relationship.
In the first comments since Saturday’s White House statement, Erdogan said that “the wrong step” would hamper relations and advised the United States to “look in the mirror”.
However, the Turkish President added that he is expected to “open a new door” in relations and discuss all agreements with President Biden at the NATO summit in June. .
