Default Ankara signals policy change on genocide claims

Ankara signals policy change on genocide claims
Thursday, November 16, 2006

ANKARA - Turkish Daily News

The government yesterday signaled a policy change regarding the alleged genocide of Armenians at the hands of the Ottoman Empire, with Foreign Minister Abdullah Gül saying that Turkey was contemplating international arbitration on the issue.

Speaking to reporters in Ankara before departing for the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus (KKTC), Gül said retired diplomats and Turkish and reliable foreign law experts were carrying out meticulous studies on the issue. “But these efforts should not be perceived as a single response aimed at finding a solution to problems that emerge at a certain time,” Gül said, hinting that the government was seeking to find a long-term solution to the problem.

Gül was responding to news report yesterday published in one of the Turkish dailies.

“Historic step from Turkey,” headlined daily Milliyet, saying that the government was preparing for a new policy on the genocide allegations, which came after Ankara proposed to establish a joint commission of academics to study genocide claims. “Gül said the government could take the genocide claims to international arbitration,” it reported. Gül was speaking at the Parliament's Planning and Budget Commission on Tuesday.

Foreign Ministry officials avoided giving details about any policy change on the Armenian issue.

Turkey's move comes as a long-term policy against influential Armenian diaspora's efforts to get international recognition as the time for the 100th anniversary of the alleged genocide approaches. The powerful diaspora efforts reached their peak in 2005 all across Europe and other continents of the world, particularly in the United States, on the 90th anniversary of the so-called genocide.

The Armenian diaspora is expected to try to get the highest ever international publicity, as they did on the 90th anniversary of the alleged genocide, blaming Turks for what Armenians called the “first genocide of the 20th century.”

In 2005, Armenians held conferences, commemoration ceremonies across the globe and pushed more strongly for parliamentary resolutions in different national and regional assemblies acknowledging that the “genocide” did take place.

Анкара видимо, очень серьезно опасается резолюции американского конгресса.
Если уж они пошли на этот шаг, то наверно им ничего другого не остается для того, чтобы Конгрес отклонил свое будущее решение по геноцидовской резолюции.
Поживем увидим. Тактика у них неплохая, но она может им повернуться спиной ... или задом. Зависит от весенней погоды в Вашингтоне.

TURKEY: ARMENIAN GENOCIDE ISSUE SPURS GOVERNMENT ACTION


Istanbul, 16 Nov. (AKI) - Turkish Foreign Minister Abdullah Gul has suggested Turkey may seek the opinon of an independent international panel on the controversial Armenian genocide issue. "Retired diplomats and reliable foreign law experts are studying the case", Gul said on Wednesday. The remarks come amid growing pressure on Turkey to acknowledge the early 20th century massacre or Armenians under the Ottomans. Last month the French senate approved a bill which would make it a criminal offence to deny that the deaths amounted to genocide.

Observers have also suggested that last week's victory in US congressional elections by the Democrats - who have closer ties with pro-Armenian lobbies in America - could mean an end in Washington's current acquiescence to Ankara on the subject.

In 2004 Turkey tried to establish a joint Turkish-Armenian commission of academics to study the issue, but the initiative failed when Armenia rejected the proposal.

If Armenia accepts Turkey’s latest proposal, then the case would be examined before the Internatonal Court of Justice in The Hague, Netherlands. A commission would be set up consisting of, an equal number of Turkish and Armenian judges and would be chaired by a national of a third country.

The commission would examine archives in Turkey, Armenia, Russia, the United States, France, Germany and Britain. It would also examine military records, demographic changes, hospital records dating from the time of the killings mostly from 1915-20.

Still, not all the signs from Turkey have been reconciliatory. Also on Wednesday Turkish land forces commander Gen. Ilker Basbug said Turkey would cut all top level military contacts with the French military on account of the Armenian genocide bill which still needs to be approved by the French National Assembly, the lower house of parliament, before it becomes law.

Мун, Анкара уже кажется спускает этот вопрос на тормозах. Турецкие дипломаты выступили с неодобрением.

А вообще интересно было б посмотреть каким будет поведение Армении на этом суде, ты права.
