/PanARMENIAN.Net/ “In 1915 made almost the half of the Turkish
population were non-Muslims, who were expatriated or destroyed. This
topic should stop being a taboo,” young Turkish writer Orhan Pamuk,
whose works are known by European readers well, said in an interview
with Hurriyet newspaper. The state leaders consider that there is no
need to address that topic, as there is a problem in relations with
Armenia. “I am not interested in the issue of state relations with
Armenia. Many people were annihilated here,” O. Pamuk said.
