Est-il besoin de rappeler que
M. Perinçek est toujours sous enquête judiciare
pour avoir nié le Génocide des Arméniens commis par l'Empire ottoman ?

Est-il en plus utile de préciser que
M. Peter Briner aurait largement outrepassé ses prérogatives
s'il avait fait cette déclaration quant à la position de la Chambre haute ?

Perincek: Withdrawal Of A Draft On So-called Armenian Massacre From Swiss Senate Is A Success

''Withdrawal of a draft resolution on the so-called Armenian massacre from the Swiss Senate is a success. We have been carrying out a struggle in international fora against the so-called Armenian genocide,'' Labor Party (IP) chairman Dogu Perincek said on Monday.

Perincek, who held a press conference at the party HQ in Istanbul, recalled that Peter Briner, president of the Senate foreign affairs committee, stated that Swiss Senate gave up to include a draft resolution on the so-called Armenian massacre on its agenda. Briner, in his statement, emphasized that the 1915 events will never be an issue for the Swiss Senate.

Perincek said Briner's statement acknowledged that, ''the problem should be discussed between the related countries --i.e. Turkey and Armenia-- and that the issue should be left to historians''.

Perincek said the draft about the so-called Armenian massacre was removed from the agenda 14 days after he was interrogated by a Swiss prosecutor. ''The withdrawal of the draft is a great success,'' Perincek stated.

Stressing that this is an opportunity for Turkey, Perincek said, ''let us act altogether and defeat the Armenian genocide lie in all European capitals.''

Perincek had been detained in Winterthur city of Switzerland as he said, ''Armenian genocide is nothing but an international lie'' at a news conference, but he was released after being interrogated.

A legal procedure was also opened in Switzerland against Prof. Dr. Yusuf Halacoglu, the Chairman of the Turkish Historical Society, because of his statement refuting the so-called Armenian genocide allegations.
