Turkey will revere the memory of all citizens who died during the events of 1915, regardless of their ethnic origin and religion, Anadolu agency reported April 24 citing Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan as saying.

President Erdogan said that the representatives of all nations living on the territory of the Ottoman Empire suffered during the events of 1915.

On Apr. 14, the European Parliament called on Turkey to recognize the events of 1915 as the "Armenian genocide".

While commenting on the European Parliament's actions, Volkan Bozkir, Turkey's minister for European Union affairs, said that this demand is groundless.

Armenia and the Armenian lobby claim that Turkey's predecessor, the Ottoman Empire, committed the so-called genocide against Armenians living in Anatolia in 1915.

While strengthening the propaganda of "genocide" in the world, Armenians achieved its recognition by parliaments of some countries.
