    Hi Farhad, you may not realise that English Language & Usage (EL&U) is a question and answer site for linguists, etymologists, and serious English language enthusiasts. For further information about what's expected in a question on our EL&U site, see How to Ask. For your reference, note that our other site English Language Learners offers a wealth of information that's useful for both native speakers and learners. This kind of question would be much more appropriate for that site. :-) – Chappo Nov 7 '18 at 11:41

'Statement' is a countable noun according to wiktionary, so 'It is a true statement.' would be the right answer.
