TURKEY DEEPLY DISAPPOINTED BY POPES’ REMARKS ON ARMENIAN KILLINGS?

 
ANKARA – Turkey told the Vatican’s ambassador on Sunday it was “deeply sorry and disappointed” that Pope Francis had called the 1915 mass killings in Armenia a genocide
Turkey official said, adding the pope’s comments had caused a “problem of trust”. 
The envoy had been summoned to the foreign ministry in Ankara, the NTV and CNN-Turk channels said, without giving further details.
The pope made the comments earlier in the day during a Mass marking the 100th anniversary of the killings. 
Muslim Turkey accepts that many Christian Armenians died in clashes with Ottoman soldiers beginning in 1915, when Armenia was part of the empire ruled from Istanbul.
However, Turkey denies hundreds of thousands were killed and that this amounted to genocide.
