1498) Armenian Patriarch Calls For Cooperation Between Historians

Istanbul, 10 March: Turkish Armenians' Patriarch Mesrob II talked to the Anatolia correspondent before the introduction of his book titled "Armenians in a society of tolerance" at a conference sponsored by the Erciyes University in Istanbul today.

Mesrob II indicated that "it would have been good if Mr Halacoglu, chairman of the Turkish Historical Society, and Armenian historian Ara Sarafian had come together. I support collaborative works by politicians, historians and academicians." . .

Sources said that Sarafian sent an e-mail to Halacoglu about his decision not to get together with Halacoglu for discussions on past incidents.

Asked if Sarafian changed his mind in meeting Halacoglu due to pressures from the Armenian diaspora, Mesrob II underlined "that may actually be the case. However, I have no definite information on the matter."
