`Today, two parts of Armenia are hosting two different events, a
Turkey-organized show on one side and a protest rally, followed by a
liturgy, on the other. The expression `two parts of Armenia’ was not a
mistaken one, as we make no difference between Western and Eastern
Armenia,’ the Genocide Museum director Hayk Demoyan told a news
conference.

`We’ll never be misled by Ankara’s attempt to turn Armenian cultural
heritage and spiritual landmark into a propaganda tool. We are the
masters of our memories and no force can take them away from us,’ he
stressed.

The rally hosting several thousand protesters was held under the
mottos `Turkey, fulfill your international obligations’ and `Our
church is not to be landed to us’.
