3519) Aram Atesyan's Speech at the Istanbul University Symposium, Jan 2015

(Speech of Aram Atesyan – Istanbul Univ. Jan.5-7, 2015)

Dear Participants and Guests,

I would like to thank the Dean’s Office of the Istanbul University, Faculty of Literature and Letters, for their kind invitation to this international symposium titled “Turkish-Armenian Relations in the 19th - 20th Century, with the theme and emphasis on social melting and mixing, resentment, disappointments and search for new ways to reconcile. Dear Guests; I believe that it should not go unnoticed that there are definite and clear differences of judicial understanding among the Turkish - Armenian Group in Turkey who are bound together with their citizenship of Republic of Turkey, the Armenian Diaspora and the Armenian Republic, whenever the Turkish - Armenian Relations are concerned. TurkishArmenian Patriarchy, as part of their daily routine, is the religious and spiritual center of the Turkish - Armenian Citizens in Turkey who are in daily contact and dialogue with the Turks. The Armenian Patriarchy assumes it its obligation and responsibility to approach the subject with goodwill and offers constructive criticism whenever the Turkish-Armenian Relations are concerned while not violating its fundamental responsibility of remaining outside the local and international politics and not acting contrary to its basic function which is religious and spiritual service . . .
