Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said he spoke with Iranian foreign minister regarding Iranian Vice President Hamid Baghaei's statements on Armenians in the Ottoman Empire period.
When a reporter said, "at a conference in Tehran, Baghaei claimed that a genocide was committed against Armenians during the rule of Ottoman Empire," Davutoglu said, "our ambassador in Tehran held talks with Iranian foreign ministry which made a statement on the matter, as you know."
Davutoglu said he has just spoke with Iranian foreign minister (Manuchehr Motaki) and asked for an explanation.
"Iranian foreign minister told me that the statement (of Baghaei) was not like as it was published in media. He said the conference (in Tehran) was about the World War II and he (vice president) made a reference regarding the World War I. He said Iran did not change its position on the matter. I told him that Iranian vice president should make a statement," he said.
Davutoglu said Iranian foreign minister told him that vice president would make a statement on the issue.
