... in an interview with the BBC Turkish service that was broadcast late on Tuesday, Erdogan said: “There are currently 170,000 Armenians living in our country. Only 70,000 of them are Turkish citizens, but we are tolerating the remaining 100,000. If necessary, I may have to tell these 100,000 to go back to their country because they are not my citizens. I don’t have to keep them in my country.”THIS ERDOGAN AND HIS ISLAMIST AKP HAVE NO BUSINESS BEING IN NATO.
Thousands of illegal Armenian immigrants, mostly women from the impoverished countryside, work as cleaning ladies and in other low-skilled jobs in Istanbul, where they settled after an earthquake in their homeland in 1988.
The exact number of Armenian immigrants in Turkey is unknown. But Turkish-Armenian groups say Turkish politicians inflate numbers of illegal workers and threaten expulsions whenever tensions escalate between Ankara and Yerevan.
Erdogan said Armenian immigrants had been allowed to work in Turkey as a “display of our peaceful approach, but we have to get something in return”.
KICK THEM OUT NOW.
AND DON'T ADMIT THEM INTO THE EUSSR, EITHER.
