3500) Historiography By Political Committee And Committed Historians by Andrew Mango

On 18 June 1987, the European Parliament met in Strasbourg to consider 'a political solution to the Armenian question', before turning its attention to the annual report on the European Regional Development Fund (which, the Portuguese rapporteur noted sadly, lacked sufficient resources and could adopt only three of the 17 national projects submitted to it).1 The Armenian debate had been awaited with apprehension by the Turks, with hope by the Armenians (and their tactical allies, the Greeks) and with indifference by almost everyone else. It had not been easy to organize. The ostensible justification for it lay in the campaign of assassination to which Turkish diplomats were subjected by Armenian terrorists. The campaign had started in January 1973 with the murder of the Turkish consul general in Los Angeles. However, it was not until 1981, by which time 19 Turkish diplomatic officials had been murdered, that a group of members of the European Parliament raised the problem in Strasbourg. Their purpose was to punish the victim, Turkey, by delaying the approval of the fourth financial protocol between that country and the European Community . .
