"Within the last period the normalization of the Armenian - Turkish
political relations have become very actual and in these efforts also
partake different international organizations, especially through
heritage," today said Hasmik Azizyan the secretary general of the
ICOMOS Armenia Center for the scientific research of monuments.

"In this context the "international institute of historical justice
and reconciliation in Hague" has initiated a meeting of Turkish and
Armenian experts last year in Strasbourg," said Hasmik Azizyan.

The speaker also mentioned that on that meeting the Armenian side
was presented by G. Gyurjyan, and the Turkish side was presented by
Osman Kavala, the head of the "Anatolucultur" organization.

The meeting was aimed at reconstructing any cultural heritage, to
create a dialogue between the two nations. And it is for that reason
why Ani was chosen.

"The project is aimed at organizing Armenian and Turkish archeological
studies in Ani, those procedures are in preparatory stage," stressed
secretary general of the ICOMOS Armenia Center for the scientific
research.
