The attendance of the Russian and French presidents at a commemoration
event in the Armenian capital for the 1915 events in the Ottoman Empire
will cast a shadow on the Minsk Group's impartiality, said Turkish
prime minister late on Thursday, Turkey's Anadolu Agencyreports.

"We expect the Minsk Group -- that mediates in Nagorno-Karabakh
conflict between Azerbaijan and Armenia -- to behave objectively in the
face of the Armenian attitude which abuses the issues," said Davutoglu.

Touching upon Putin, who named the 1915 events as "genocide," Davutoglu
said he is in touch with the Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu
and "necessary steps" will be taken in this regard, Anadolu reports.

"Any position that disturbs and insults our history, will abuse our
trust in anyway," said Davutoglu.
