AZG Armenian Daily
On April 25 "Lraber", the official newspaper of the Armenian Patriarchy
of Constantinople, reported that Patriarch Mesrob II Mutafian condemned
the assault on the Turkish Embassy in Moscow, Russia. "I have said
that the Armenian and the Turkish people must have respect for each
other’s national and religious symbols, so as to prevent those symbols
of becoming the target of radical protest actions and to contribute
the process of establishment of friendship between those nations,"
"Lraber" reports his words. He said such actions as tearing apart the
flag of Turkey and the portrait of Ataturk, which are the national
symbols of the Republic of Turkey, cannot be of any use and can only
serve to the escalation of enmity between Armenia and Turkey.
