YEREVAN. - The Armenian authorities do not actively react to the
cases of destruction of Armenian monuments in Turkey and Azerbaijan,
expert Samvel Karapetyan told Armenian News-NEWS.am commenting on
the reports about the destruction of the Armenian cemetery in Turkey.

"In Turkey the Armenian monuments have been destructed and the process
continues, and the current destruction of a cemetery is a very trifle
thing actually," Karapetyan believes.

He reminded that when even more significant fact of destruction
was registered in Azerbaijan, which destroyed Armenian medieval
cross-stones in Nakhidjevan, the Armenian authorities did not responded
to it properly as well.

As Armenian News-NEWS.am reported earlier, an Armenian cemetery was
destroyed in July in Turkey to build a new road in the Eruh region
of the country's Siirt (Sghert) Province.
