Garo Paylan, a Turkish-Armenian lawmaker from the Peoples' Democratic Party (HDP), has reacted to comments made by Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan who recently called Armenia "a state born yesterday" and described Armenians as "refugees".
"The Armenian people, together with other nations, have lived in this land for thousands of years. They have created civilizations everywhere they have lived," Paylan said in a tweet.
"Shame on you!" he wrote addressing Erdogan.
"Denying the genocide, Erdoğan glorifies it."
