We don't recognise "Armenian genocide" considering our relations with Azerbaijan - Israel's Defense Minister (VIDEO)
19 December 2017
Israel does not recognise "Armenian genocide" with regard to Azerbaijan, Israeli Defence Minister Avigdor Lieberman said in his interview to RTV1 Tv channel.
"This is a historical and disputed issue. Our stance over the "Armenian genocide" remains unchanged ", the minister said while answering to the question "Some international organisations call Israel to recognize the "Armenian genocide" through putting pressure on Turkey, what do you think about it?
"Israel does not recognise the so-called genocide considering our relations with Azerbaijan. There is no doubt that it is more important for us", he added.
Note, this statement is a coherent response to the Russian and Armenian media publishing articles about "the end of Azerbaijan and Israel relations".
