ATOM EGOYAN WELCOMES CANADIAN PRIME MINISTER'S STATEMENT CONCERNING
ARMENIAN GENOCIDE


YEREVAN, MAY 12, NOYAN TAPAN - ARMENIANS TODAY. Canadian Armenian
famous film producer Atom Egoyan welcame Canadian Prime Minister
Stephen Harper's statement concerning the Armenian Genocide, Radio
Liberty informs. "I think, Harper's Government fostered just from the
beginning a brave position towards few issues which may remain in
depths of history. Meanwhile those issues need detailed
examination. It is very interesting for me that conservatory
governments often seem to be morally more responsible than it was
possible to imagine,"

Egoyan said to the Canadian Press. "I am sure that the only mean to
fix a progress in this issue is giving recognition in as many places
as it is possible and isolution of the Government of Turkey. This is
the only way to bring to changes," Atom Egoyan expressed an
opinion. There is information that the Foreign Ministry of Turkey has
an intensive tie with Harper's staff, making an attempt to assure the
Prime Minister "not to go into details of the issue."

Meanwhile they write in the Turkish press that Canada may be taken the
possibility of participating in programs of building the first atomic
power station in Turkey.
