Turkey determined to clarify Armenian genocide claims

"We have been carrying out multi-dimensional works to reveal the truths about the Armenian issue," Turkish Foreign Minister and Deputy Prime Minister Abdullah Gul said on Thursday [4 August].

In response to a question motion of Motherland Party (ANAP) parliamentarian Muhsin Kocyigit, Gul said, "both the Turkish Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) and Turkish embassies have been carrying out multi-dimensional works to reveal the truths about the Armenian issue.

We have published a number of books refuting the allegations of Armenians, and sent them to decision-making mechanisms, parliamentarians, academicians, journalists, universities, libraries and the other relevant institutions in the world through our embassies."

"Also, books and articles of both Turkish and foreign academicians were distributed to the relevant circles. The MFA holds a series of seminars and conferences with the participation of Turkish and foreign scientists in countries where Armenian lobby is active, with the aim of informing public opinion," he said.

Gul noted, "as a member of the Minsk Group of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) and as a regional actor in southern Caucasia, Turkey has been making active contributions to efforts to resolve the Upper Karabakh dispute between Azerbaijan and Armenia from the very beginning of the dispute."

"Turkey closely monitors developments about Azerbaijani refugees who were forced to leave their homes due to the occupation of Upper Karabakh by Armenia. In addition to our aid, we pursue an active policy in order to draw attention of the international community to the issue," he said.
