Turkologist: On threshold of Armenian Genocide's centennial, Turkey may resort to any tricks, even to creation of fictional government of Western Armenia in exile

  • Thursday, November 22, 20:28

On the threshold of the Armenian Genocide's centennial, Turkey may resort to any tricks to prevent a new wave of international recognition of Armenian Genocide. Artak Shakaryan, turkologist, Candidate of Science in History, made such statement in a press conference, Thursday. It is already obvious that Ankara is going to work intensively with the Armenian Diaspora relying on every possible, and sometimes unknown and marginal structures.

He thinks that Turkey perceives the Armenians of Diaspora as successors of the Ottoman Empire's subjects. If official Yerevan denies the rumors of possible secret talks with Ankara, Turkey will demonstrate the work with Diaspora to the world.

"So, a few days or months before April 24 2015 Turkey may declare that it has achieved mutual understanding with the Armenian party meaning a marginal organization of Diaspora. In addition, as a result of such talks Turkey may create a fictional government of Western Armenian in exile. And one beautiful day that fictional government may announce that it has no territorial claims to Turkey," Shakaryan said.

In this light, he thinks that official Yerevan must mobilize all its resources to neutralize the threats of Turkish lobby on the threshold of the Armenian Genocide centennial.

"The situation is dangerous. Although Armenia announced that a state commission has been set up to coordinate the events for the Armenian Genocide centennial, it is not clear to the public what particular steps the given structure will make for efficient international recognition of the Armenian Genocide.  I think that the Armenian Foreign Ministry, Diaspora Ministry and all the other competent agencies must work intensively with Diaspora to avoid any scenarios of Turkish's lobby. It is inadmissible neglecting that threat," Shakaryan concluded.
