NON-RECOGNITION OF ARMENIAN GENOCIDE OF 1915 IN OTTOMAN TURKEY AFTER
90 YEARS DISGRACE TO WHOLE HUMANITY

YEREVAN, MARCH 24. ARMINFO. Non-recognition of the Armenian Genocide
of 1915 in ottoman Turkey after 90 years is a disgrace to the whole
humanity. An employee of the Institute of History of the National
Academy of Sciences of Armenia, Doctor of Historical Sciences,
Professor Stepan Stepanyan says at a press- conference at the
Discussion Club "Pakagits."

He says that the modern Turkey is as responsible for the Genocide as
the Young Turks, as Turkey denies and even insists on alleged
massacre of Turks by Armenians. Turkey must be made to compensate
some $60 bln to the successors of the Genocide victims and to return
the Western Armenia it had occupied.

Levering harsh criticism at the USA, which does not recognize the
Genocide to favor Turkey, Stepanyan notes that already 15 countries
in the world have recognized the Genocide, including Russia and
France. Germany is due to recognize the Genocide despite the fact
that 3 million of that country's citizens are Turks. In this
connection, Stepan Stepananyan presented a newly published book
"Armenian Genocide" in Russian (500 samples), which he had worked on
for 3 years. If Turkey announces its archive open, it means that many
document have been liquidated, so the truth must be searched in
archives of other states.

In response to the question on possible participation of "Zionists
and masons" in organization of Genocide as several Armenian
historians say the professors notes that he respect the memory and
activity of all his colleagues, but he is sure that the main
organizers of Genocide were the Turks - Talahat-pasha, Enver-pasha
and Jamal-pasha.
