Mustafa Kemal Opinions Towards Armenians in Turkey

At the meeting of the Adana Turkish Merchant Society on March 16, 1923, Mustafa Kemal said:  “The Armenians have no right whatsoever in this beautiful country. Your country is yours, it belongs to Turks. This country was Turkish in history; therefore it is Turkish and it shall live on as Turkish to eternity…Armenians and so forth have no rights whatsoever here. These beautiful lands are deeply and genuinely the homeland of the Turks.”
