Iran vice president :- 1915 events a 'genocide' !

The mass killings and deportation of Armenians during the waning days of the Ottoman Empire constituted a “genocide,” according to Iranian Vice President Hamid Baghaei.

“A hundred years ago the Ottoman Empire committed genocide against a certain number of Armenians. Although the Ottoman Empire does not exist now, Armenians have demanded official apologies and restitution from Turkey,” IRNA quoted Baghaei as saying.

Baghaei was giving a speech on the damage caused to Iran during World War II when he made the comments, the country’s IRNA news agency reported Wednesday.

In Armenia, Armenian Revolutionary Federation, or Dashnaktsutyun, Political Affairs Director Giro Manoyan reportedly praised the statements made during the conference and said Iranian officials had often used the term “genocide.”

“We should not be surprised that Iranian political officials do not deny the veracity of the genocide,” said Manoyan, adding it was the first time Iran’s vice president has acknowledged it.

The vice president also said Iran would make America, Russia and the United Kingdom abandon their proud feelings, making them understand that Iran was the object of their destruction during World War II.

Baghaei attended an exhibition opening called “Persian Civilization and 2,000 common heritages” in Turkey with Culture and Tourism Minister Ertuğrul Günay in the scope of the “Year of Turkey-Iran Culture” in December 2009.

Erdogan wanted to get into bed with Iran and abandon the alliance with Israel and the west? This is what you end up with. With allies like Iran, who needs enemies... LOL.
