No: 171, 10 August 2020, Press Release Regarding The Statements Of The Authorities Of Armenia On The Pretext Of The Centenary Of The Treaty Of Sèvres

Republic Of Turkey Ministry Of Foreign Affairs 11.08.2020

The Treaty of Sèvres which aimed at breaking up of our homeland and end our independence and sovereignty in the aftermath of WWI, was a case in point that put forward the disgraceful blueprints of invasion and destruction.

Honourable Turkish Nation sent the Sèvres to the ash heap of history through its heroic War of Liberation, followed by the Peace Treaty of Lausanne of 24 July 1923. It is not suprising to see that those who opt for drawing animosity instead of a lesson from history after the lapse of a century, hope for help from this document.

Response of the noble Turkish Nation to those who had dared to invade Anatolia and its heavy blow to imperialism are in the textbooks of history. This glorious struggle provided an example to other oppressed nations as well.

Today, after 100 years, the dare of an administration that is unable to feed even its own population, to bring forward the Sèvres document which the Turkish Nation tore up, is preposterous.

Those who entertain such incidious aims need to know well that facing the determination of Turkey to ensure its indivisibility with its homeland and nation, these will stick in their gizzard.

Armenia which continues its illegal occupation of Azerbaijani lands for years, is the real impediment before the regional peace and stability. It is time for the authorities of Armenia to abandon aggressive nationalist and jingoist policies and come to their senses.
