Turkey PM says could deport up to 100,000 Armenians

Published: 03.17.10, 15:51 / Israel News

Turkey's prime minister has threatened to expel thousands of illegal Armenian immigrants after US and Swedish lawmakers passed votes branding World War One-era killings of Armenians by Ottoman Turks as genocide.


Turkey, a NATO member and candidate to join the European Union, recalled its ambassadors to Washington and Stockholm after the non-binding votes and warned they could hurt a fragile effort to reconcile with Armenia after a century of hostility. (Reuters)
