Turkey slams Argentine judge ruling that accuses Turkey of committing 'Armenian genocide'
By The Associated Press 4 hours ago

ANKARA, Turkey Turkey has slammed an Argentine judge's ruling that it committed genocide against Armenians around the time of World War I.

The Foreign Ministry said Monday the ruling was an example of how legal systems are abused by extreme nationalists belonging to the Armenian diaspora.

Judge Norberto Oyarbide ruled Friday that "the Turkish state committed the crime of genocide against the Armenian people" between 1915 and 1923

Turkey said the decision was based on unserious accusations, and it destabilizes efforts to mend ties with Armenia.

Many international experts say the killing of up to 1.5 million Armenians by Ottoman Turks around the time constituted genocide. Turkey, however, maintains far fewer died than claimed and any deaths were instead due to civil war and unrest.
