Uruguay’s Foreign Minister Francisco Bustillo condemned Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu’s move in Montevideo where the latter tried to taunt Armenian demonstrators by flashing the ultra-nationalist Grey Wolves salute, Armenpress reports.
Speaking at an Armenian Genocide commemoration ceremony, FM Bustillo said that Uruguay is a country that respects memory and is a country seeking peace, El Pais reports.
“In cases of confrontations our country prefers reconciliation. We advocate mutual understanding, and tolerance and we hope that those who visit our country, where peace and tolerance are advocated, will act in this manner.
I reject and condemn any insulting conduct or gesture that implies physical or moral violence,” the Uruguayan FM said, referring to Cavusoglu’s Grey Wolves salute.
