Erdogan Threatens US to Recognize Mass Killings of Native Americans in Response of Recognition of the Armenian Genocide by US Senate

Reuters

The Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan threatened US to recognize mass killings of Native Americans during the colonial period as genocide in response to US Senate recognition of the Armenian Genocide.

The Senate unanimously voted Thursday to pass a resolution that called the mass killings of 1.5 million Armenians in the Ottoman Empire as genocide.

"We should oppose you by reciprocating such decisions in parliament. And that is what we will do. Can we speak about America without mentioning Indians? It is a shameful moment in the US history," Erdogan said in an interview to Haber news channel, ''RIA Novosti'' reports.
