TURKEY MUST THINK ABOUT EDUCATION OF ITS NEW GENERATION
Poet Razmik Davoyan told a discussion with artist Henrik Harukian
saying "there can be no more barbaric attitude to a spiritual figure,"
speaking about the protest of Turks connected with the arrival of
Catholicos of All Armenians Garegin II to Istanbul.
In his words, it is not clear how the Turkish authorities can
talk about democracy and think about European integration after
that. R. Davoyan thinks that there is no sense to condemn the behavior
of Turks. Only conclusions can be made. "Turkish authorities must
think about the education of their new generation," Davoyan stressed,
adding that the two countries have the right to communicate even
though there are no diplomatic relations between the two.
H. Harukyan said in his turn that there are some people who are
ashamed of the behavior of their fellow countrymen.
