Turkish Organization Calls on Turkey to Recognize 1915 Genocide
The Organization of Circassians and Lazes of Turkey (OCLT) has issued a report calling on Turkey to recognize the 1915 Genocide of Assyrians, Armenians and Greeks. The report was issued at a conference organized by OCLT on the rights of minorities in Turkey.
The report calls on Turkey to acknowledge the historic events of World War One and to apologize for the genocide and displacement of Armenians, Assyrians and Greeks in 1915, as well as the deportation of Circassians in 1922, and the slaughter of Trakia in 1934.
The Turkish Genocide claimed 750,000 Assyrians (75%), 1.5 million Armenians and 500,000 Greeks.
