Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Wednesday slammed the recognition by the US House of Representatives of the "Armenian genocide" as "worthless" and the "biggest insult" to the Turkish people.


"From here I am addressing US public opinion and the entire world: this step which was taken is worthless and we do not recognise it," Erdogan said in a televised speech.


Erdogan added that Turkey will not extradite any criminals to the US unless it extradites Turkish Muslim scholar Fethullah Gulen.
