Armenia hands invitation letter to ErdoÄ?an to mark 100th
anniversary of 1915


Armenian Foreign Minister Edward Nalbandian has officially invited
Turkish President Recep Tayyip ErdoÄ?an to a ceremony that will mark
the 100th anniversary of the killing of Ottoman Armenians in 1915.

Nalbandian attended ErdoÄ?an's inauguration ceremony in Ankara on Aug.
28, where he handed him the official letter to attend the ceremony
next year.

`During the reception given after the ceremony in the honor of the
heads of delegations, Nalbandian had a short conversation with
President ErdoÄ?an and handed him the official invitation letter by the
President of Armenia Serzh Sargsyan to attend the Remembrance
Ceremony, dedicated to the victims of the Armenian Genocide, which
will take place in Yerevan on April 24, 2015,' a written statement by
the Armenian Foreign Ministry said Aug. 29. The Turkish Foreign
Ministry declined to comment on the issue.

For the first time, ErdoÄ?an offered condolences for the mass killing
of Armenians under Ottoman rule during World War I. His comments came
on the eve of the 99th anniversary of the mass deportation of
Armenians in 1915. ErdoÄ?an said the events of 1915 had `inhumane
consequences,' and expressed hope that those who died were at peace.
