The Turkish Prime Minister has reportedly sent a letter to Prime
Minister Stephen Harper.

The Globe and Mail reports Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan
asked Harper not to recognize the Armenian genocide.

Instead, he is asking Canada to support an academic inquiry into the
mass killings.

Harper became the first Canadian Prime Minister to declare that the
deaths of an estimated 1.5 million Armenians during the First World
War amounted to genocide.
