3516) Special Report: The Turkish-Armenian Rapprochement

*Tennessee Technical University, USA
**Antwerp Lessius University College, Belgium

Perhaps one of the most intractable international disputes, the Turkish-Armenian enmity, until recently, seemed incapable even of being discussed let alone brokered. Once called the millet-i-sadika, or loyal millet, the Armenians in the eyes of the Turks became traitors during World War I and during 1915 were ‘deported,’ a euphemism to cover the horrors and massacres that, from the perspective of Armenians, was genocide.1 As a result of the Turkish-Armenian rapprochement, which is analyzed in this article, however, the two sides have agreed to establish an historical commission ‘to implement a dialogue on the historical dimension with the aim to restore mutual con?dence between the two nations, including an impartial scienti?c examination of the historical records and archives to de?ne existing problems and formulate recommendations.’2 . . .
