Yerevan/Mediamax/. The leader of Turkey’s opposition Nationalist Movement Party Devlet Bahceli stated that "the deportation of Armenians in 1915 and 1916 by the Ottomans was the right decision”.

“The future of our people would be in danger if the deportation decision for the Armenians wasn’t given in those conditions,” said Bahceli during a parliamentary group meeting of his party in Ankara on June 8, Turkish Hurriyet reports.

The Turkish politician added that such decision “should be done again if the circumstances were the same”.

“Changing the places of the Armenians doesn’t aim to annihilate them, but to protect the state, which is absolutely correct,” said Bahceli.
