Armenian students of the ELTE University in Budapest not allowed to the meeting with Turkish premier

  • Monday, February 11, 11:57

Turkish Prime Minister Recep Erdogan was in Budapest on Feb 5. A diplomatic source reports that a meeting with the students of ELTE University was among the events on agenda of Erdogan's visit. Armenian students, who were informed of the meeting beforehand, prepared questions for the Turkish premier. 
However, Turkish Armenophobia was reflected even in Budapest i.e.  the Armenian and Greek students were not allowed to the meeting at the last moment.

Greek students along with others from Syria and Armenia protested Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan's visit to Budapest. During his lecture, they stood outside the university where he was speaking and called him terrorist, insisting Turkey recognize the Armenian Genocide.

To recall, on August 31 2012 the Armenian authorities adopted a decision to suspend diplomatic relations and official contacts with Hungary. President of Armenia Serzh Sargsyan made public the decision at a special meeting with the heads of diplomatic missions on Friday after the Hungarian authorities extradited Azeri officer Ramil Safarov, who was sentenced by a Hungarian court to life in jail for killing sleeping Armenian officer Gurgen Margaryan with an axe in Budapest in 2004. Both the officers were undergoing an English language course under the NATO PfP program. The same day after Safarov's extradition, Azeri President Ilham Aliyev decreed to pardon the criminal.
