Republic Of Turkey Ministry Of Foreign Affairs 06.05.2019

We condemn in the strongest terms the burial of the remains located in Los Angeles of the Armenian terrorist Gurgen Yanikiyan, who martyred Mehmet Baydar, Consul General, and Bahadır Demir, Consul, in Los Angeles on 27 January 1973, to the Military Cemetery in Yerevan with a ceremony on 5 May 2019.

This action, which attempts to glorify a brutal terrorist as a hero, constitutes a crime of promoting terrorism and it is unacceptable under any circumstance.

On this occasion, we once more commemorate with respect all of our officials and their family members who fell martyrs while serving faithfully to their State.

Çınar Ergin Consul General
