President of Turkey said Armenia had fixed April 24 date to coincide
with the anniversary of the Battle of Gallipoli.

In an interview with France 24 television, Recep Tayyip Erdogan said
Turkey is commemorating the 100th anniversary of the Gallipoli Battles
and "we are in no position to obtain permission from Armenia".

"It is a date in history and it has nothing to do with the ceremonies
in Armenia. Quite on the contrary, they fixed their ceremonies to
coincide with our date," Erdogan said.

Speaking about problems between Armenia and Turkey, he said it was
Ankara that always "took a positive step"and "extended our hand
in peace".
