Turkish Nationalists Urge to Expel Armenian Migrants

Haber, Haberler

French President Emmanuel Macron’s move to declare April 24 a day of Armenian Genocide remembrance has angered the leader of a nationalist party, who called for strong government efforts towards banning Armenian citizens’ residence in the country, Tert.am reports. 

Head of the Great Union Party Mustafa Destici has raised a demand for expelling Armenian migrants.

''Not only Macron but also the entire world must join [our demand]; they cannot force us to accept that,'' BirGün quotes him as saying.

The Turkish politician also blamed France for a genocidal past, citing the vast number of human losses in Rwanda and Algeria.
