A picture of an “Armenian Genocide Monument” was “mistakenly” published in a planner by the Turkish foreign ministry, the Hürriyet Daily News reported Thursday.

The picture of the monument in Yerevan, Armenia was included on a day planner prepared to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Battle of Çanakkale in World War I.

The image had been “accidentally included with other photographs,” a foreign ministry official told the newspaper.

He also said individuals responsible for the mistake will be penalized.

The official denied claims that the picture indicated “a new Armenian opening” policy from Turkey.
