ISTANBUL - President Tayyip Erdogan said on Wednesday that Turkey would disregard the European parliament's views over the 1915 mass killings of Armenians, which the Pope this week described as genocide.

The European parliament is due later on Wednesday to debate a resolution to mark the 100th anniversary of the killing of as many as 1.5 million Armenians.

"Whatever decision they may take, it would go in one ear and out the other," Erdogan told reporters at Ankara airport before departing on an official visit to Kazakhstan.
