the 1970 and 1980s.
Prof. Cengiz Kutay said “We support strongly the Armenian Conference in
Istanbul though we do not share the speeches made in the Conference. It

ago. However all the Turkish diplomats who were killed by the Armenian
terrorists and the Armenian attacks against the Turkish civilians
More than 520.000 Turkish villagers were massacred by the Armenian
armed groups in order to establish an independent Armenian in the
eastern provinces of the Ottoman Empire.
