Armenian Patriarchate of Constantinople urges to refrain from statements targeted at Armenian community
YEREVAN, SEPTEMBER 10, ARMENPRESS. Armenian Patriarchate of Constantinople has released a statement condemning the ongoing terrorist acts in Turkey urging to withhold from making statements and announcements targeted at the Armenian community in Turkey. “Armenpress” reports, referring to Anadolu news agency, that the Patriarchate informs in the statement that they pray for the cease of terrorist acts threatening the unity and integrity of Turkey and establishment of long-term peace.
The Armenian Patriarchate of Constantinople expressed its concerns that very often different articles can be found in Turkish media targeted at the Armenian community in Turkey.
“From time to time expressions of some writers targeting our community and identifying it with that terrorist group deeply insult the Armenian citizens who have always been committed to this country and possess civic consciousness. Using unjust expressions referring to the Armenian citizens considering themselves a part of Turkey is an attitude not fitting in the frames of goodness. We are convinced that the majority of our nation does not agree to these alienating expressions.”, reads the statement.
Patriarchate strongly condemns any terrorist act in the country expressing their condolences to the families who had losses during these days.
