Armenian Diaspora puts both Armenia and third sides in difficult situation, which turned out to be the case with Argentina, Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan said.
As he noted at АКР sitting, commenting on cancellation of his visit to Argentina, “Forces influenced by Armenian Diaspora will realize how harmful such policy is to Armenia and their countries.”
Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan cancelled the Argentina leg of his tour of Latin America. It came after city officials in Buenos Aires called off an event inaugurating a monument to Mustafa Kemal Ataturk. The Turkish foreign ministry blamed "hostile" interference from Armenian pressure groups in Argentina. President Cristina Kirchner is reported to have telephoned Mr Erdogan to express her understanding of his position, but to explain that the central government could not reverse the city government's decision, BBC News reported.
