Press Release Regarding The Activities Within The Framework Of The So-called “pontian Greek Genocide Commemoration Day” , 28.05.2010

The bill adopted by the Greek Parliament on 24 February 1994 and, the activities that recently took place again within that framework of the so-called “Pontian Greek Genocide Commemoration Day” are merely a distortion of historical facts.

Such activities aiming to create a misleading interpretation of history also run counter to the spirit of the cooperation climate which we are trying to build with the common will of the political leaderships in both countries, in order to give a new impetus to Turkish-Greek relations.
