The Greek Foreign Ministry announced on Wednesday that Ankara is trying to falsify history, calling on it to recognize the genocide of the Greeks.

“The recognition of historical truth, self-criticism and the abandonment of history denotes strength, not weakness, and is also a prerequisite for fair dialogue, combating intolerance and achieving reconciliation between peoples and nations,” the Greek Foreign Ministry said in a statement.

“The Greek Foreign Ministry believes that the recognition of certain events, such as the genocide of the Greeks by the Turkish army, is a historic task for everyone, especially Turkey, in order to prevent the recurrence of dark historical events.”

This stance came in response to the Turkish Foreign Ministry’s accusations that Greece was distorting history.

The anniversary of the Greek genocide, which claimed the lives of more than 350,000 people, took place in Greece on May 19.
