Turkish And Armenian Historians To Discuss Armenian Issue



ANKARA - Armenian allegations will be discussed on official science
platform.

Turkish History Institution (TTK) Chairman Prof. Dr. Yusuf Halacoglu
told the A.A correspondent on Wednesday that they would come together
with Armenians under the auspices of Vienna University in 2004 to
discuss the year 1915.

Stating that TTK Armenian Desk Chairman Prof. Dr. Hikmet Ozdemir and
he would attend the meeting, Halacoglu said, ''Vienna University also
asked Chairmanship of Academy of Sciences from Armenia if they could
take part in such a meeting. They said they accepted to attend in
principle, but they did not yet inform us who would attend the
discussions. After they inform us, the issue will be officialized.''

''Then, we will reciprocally send each other archive documents and
source documents. We will examine these documents and then come
together in Vienna to hold a discussion under the auspices of Vienna
University.''

Halacoglu said the meeting could be hold in 2004 in a day determined
by the sides after the answer of the Armenian side became clear.

Noting that they would discuss Armenian issue in a closed meeting by
mutually submitting documents, Halacoglu said, ''the main subject of
this discussion is the year 1915, the year Armenians alleged that
they were exposed to genocide. In fact, this meeting can be
considered a period of revealing all the cards in hand. We will
discuss the issue mutually for the first time with this meeting.''

Halacoglu said that the content of the meeting would later be made
public with a statement by Vienna University.

Underlining that the Armenians refrained from discussing the issue so
far, Halacoglu said, ''if we hold this meeting, Armenians and Turks
will come together and discuss the past for the first time in
history. I think it will be a very interesting discussion.''
