What seemed for a second unavoidable really happened. Turkey is angry with Romania nominating an Armenian minority representative as European Commissioner!
Turkish daily Hurriyet reads that Turkish officials expressed their discontent with the nomination made by Romania, „a Black Sea ally”. „Vosganian played a major role in Romania’s recognition of the Turkish genocide against Armenians”, Hurriyet comments.
Romania declared the april 24th as an official date for the genocide commemoration, thus joining the group of nations that accuse Ankara for the actions taken during the first half of the XXth century.
The European Union is currently putting pressure on Turkey in order to make the state admit this delicate subject in its past.
Historians claim that over 1.5 million Armenians were killed between 1915 and 1923.
