Turkey's Ministry of Foreign Affairs has denied aiding Al Qaeda affiliated groups in Syria after an Armenian representative accused them of doing so at the Permanent Council of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe meeting on March 27.
Calling the allegations 'shameful' and 'baseless', the statement published on Sunday emphasized on Turkey's aid to civilians affected by the war in Syria and underlined that Turkey was the country most afflicted by terrorism stemming from Syria.
Ever since Syrian opposition forces seized the mainly Armenian and Turkmen border town of Kasab from regime soldiers last month, there have been a number of unfounded rumors regarding the security of the ethnic Armenian Christians of the town.
However, community members and leaders in the town have said that the opposition fighters have been treating the Armenians well. Some Armenians have fled to Turkey to get away from bombardments by the Syrian regime, where they have also been given kind treatment and reunited with relatives across the border.
