During the 95th commemoration of a Turkish military victory during World War One Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan maintained that Armenians in the Ottoman Empire had not faced genocide but in fact had plotted to exterminate Turks.

He added "Our warriors always respected ancestral laws and did not kill innocent people even on the battlefield".

He underscored that his country's history boasted of a clean and untarnished slate citing that "No country’s parliament can tarnish it". He was referring to the U.S. and Swedish lawmakers’ latest resolutions recognizing the annihilation of 1.5 million Armenians by Ottoman Turks as genocide.
 
Erdogan claimed there was no genocide in their civilization confirming that in fact their civilization had enjoyed love, tolerance and brotherhood. “Muslims don’t commit genocide,” he said.

However it was reported that the Turkish premier did use the word “genocide,” when he slammed the deaths of several dozen Turkic-speaking and Muslim Uighurs during  last years unrest in China’s northwestern Xinjiang region.
