"Armenian terrorist Hamping Sasunyan, who assassinated the Turkish Consul General in Los Angeles in 1982, was released in March. We warned that the impunity of these murderers would only serve to encourage the supporters of a new generation of extremists.
"Distortion of history encourages Armenian extremists who threaten Azerbaijanis living in the United States. We are concerned about this fact. Turkey stands by Azerbaijan against all threats and urges the US leadership to take the necessary measures. An exhibition dedicated to our diplomats killed by Armenian terrorists will open in Los Angeles on May 1," he said.
