Tension between Turkey and Vatican on Inclusion of Armenian Genocide

ANKARA (Sabah)–Turkey’s Sabah daily newspaper reports that the inclusion of the Armenian genocide in the book–"The Church’s Guidelines on Social Education," distributed by the Vatican–has caused friction between the Turkish government and the papal authority.

Sabah reports that Turkey’s foreign ministry has approached and warned the Vatican on the issue–insisting that the section on the Armenian genocide be removed.

The Genocide is included in the book’s "Seeking Worldwide Peace and Justice" section–along with the genocides of Ukrainians–Cambodians–and the African people.
