ISTANBUL (Armradio.am) — On April 24 the Turkish CNBC TV aired the Armenian Genocide centennial commemoration events instead of Gallipoli celebrations during the news program.

While the anchorwoman was telling about the events marking the 100th anniversary of Battle of Gallipoli, footage on the background was showing the commemoration of the Armenian Genocide centenary at Tsitsernakaberd Memorial.

The CNBC showed Armenian President Serzh Sarkisian welcoming the foreign guests. Only close to the end of the report Erdogan was seen placing flowers at the memorial to the soldiers fallen in the Battle of Gallipoli.
