Conspiracy theory in Eurovision: Turkey claims genocide hint in Armenia's «Apricot stone»
Rivas’s Apricot Stone is accused of ‘having political context’.
According to Anadolu (Anatolian) News Agency (Turkey), composer Yagoub Mutlu, who was at the Armenian national selection final concert ( February 14) said that Rivas’s ‘Apricot Stone’ apparently hinted at 1915 events.
The Turkish composer quoting the lyrics of the song, clarifies that
“Many, many years ago
when I was a little child,
our world is cruel and wild,
but to make your way
through cold and heat love
is all that you need”
sentence apparently recalls about deportation of Armenians by Ottoman Turkey in 1915 and ways they have passed.
