Unzipped covers the Queen and Prince Philip's first visit to Turkey since 1971. As the official state visit has been taken as signifying the importance of Anglo-Turkish relations, the blog makes reference to concerns that it could also impact on the international campaign [1] to have the 1915 massacre and deportation of Armenians living in the Ottoman Empire recognized as Genocide.
