Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has spoken harshly against the remarks of Armenian President Serzh Sargsyan who used accusatory words against Turkey and declared that Armenia is ready for a war with Azerbaijan amid ongoing conflict over Nagorno Karabakh, Yenisafak reports.

 

“Armenia is playing with fire. More than 100,000 Armenians are living in Turkey, some of whom do not have residence permits. The situation has been tolerated by Turkey. Along with this, we also returned foundation goods of Armenian-origin Turkish citizens. These actions show how friendly Turkey has been acting. However, Armenia cannot see this,” said Erdogan during his flight from the Azerbaijani capital, Baku, to Zagreb, the capital of Croatia.

 

In April last year Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan threatened to deport the roughly 100,000 citizens of the Republic of Armenia who live and work in Turkey, as a response to the European Parliament’s recognition of the Armenian Genocide.
