Turkey slams Syria’s ‘hypocrisy’ over Armenian genocide move

Istanbul: Turkey on Thursday slammed the Syrian parliament’s recognition of World War I killings of Armenians as genocide as a “hypocrisy”, as tensions run high amid deadly clashes in northwest Syria.
“This is a picture of hypocrisy on the part of a regime which has for years committed any kind of massacre on its own people... which has displaced millions and which is well known for its use of chemical weapons,” the Turkish foreign ministry said in a statement.
The controversial move by Damascus, however, comes after escalating tensions with its fierce opponent over the deadly clashes in the northwestern province of Idlib this month. (AFP)
