Research campaign for alleged genocide

Radikal said the main opposition Republican People's Party (CHP)
will launch a campaign in Parliament to investigate the alleged
Armenian genocide, which is claimed to have occurred around the time
of the fall of the Ottoman Empire.

`Turkey has become bored with this business. Everyone should put
forward what he knows. The truth must be revealed,' the newspaper
quoted CHP leader Deniz Baykal as saying when he proposed the
formation of a commission formed by both Armenian and Turkish
historians.

Radikal reported that the CHP's Şükrü Elekdağ has offered to send a
letter to the British Parliament asking them to admit that the
documents mentioned as proof of the alleged Armenian genocide are not
supportive of the allegation.
