Garo Paylan: Turkey Is Now Living a Period of 'Dark Winter' as It Lived Exactly 100 Years Ago

"We believe there is possibility to live in peace and solidarity. The Peoples’ Democratic Party recognizes the Armenian Genocide and knows Turkey will fail to solve the Kurdish issue and become a democratic state without confronting the historical past, Armenian member of the Turkish parliament Garo Paylan of the Peoples’ Democratic Party (HDP) stated on Tuesday during remarks at the 6th Pan-Armenian Armenia-Diaspora conference in Yerevan, reports.

According to him under President Erdogan’s rule Turkey is living a period of 'dark winter' as it lived exactly 100 years ago, while the West continues keeping a close eye on human rights violations in Turkey as it did on the Armenian Genocide.

"Only democratic Turkey can recognize the Armenian Genocide, likewise only democratic Turkey may open the border with Armenia," Paylan stated, adding the matter should not be passed to coming generations since four generations have struggled for achieving justice.
