Turks and Azeris gathered outside the Armenian Patriarchate in Constantinople yesterday as an act of provocation while tensions between Armenia and Azerbaijan escalate in the Artsakh region.
Ermeni Patrikhanesi’nin olduğu sokakta böyle bir gösteri yapılmasına izin verilmesi provakasyondur.
İktidarı, Patrikhanemiz ve kurumlarımızla ilgili gerekli tedbirleri almaya çağırıyorum.

The Turkish government, which, unlike the rest of the international community, is fuelling tensions instead of calling for de-escalation, has allowed Azeris to gather in cars and flags of Azerbaijan and Turkey outside the Armenian Patriarchate.
As reported by sigmalive.com at the same time the Armenian clergy sent messages of support to the Armenian armed forces who rushed to recruit in order to face the Turkish / Azerbaijani attacks.
“I looked into the eyes of our soldiers and realized that they love their homeland more than I believe in God,” was the statement of the Armenian Priest Abel Kartashyan that went viral.
It is noteworthy that the official twitter account of Armenia uploaded a photo with a priest holding a cross on one side and a gun on the other. “Faith and Power”, was the slogan that was posted.
