The meeting is organized on the initiative of the Ankara's Thought Freedom organisation and will be dedicated to Grant Dink, a Turkish journalist of Armenian origin, killed 3 years ago - Kavkazski Uzel. Reptesentatives of Turkish and Armenian intelligentsia will participate, as well as scholars from other countries. Events, that lead to the genocide of 1915, its consequences, policy of denial in Turkey, and other topics will be discussed.
According to Khachik Murdyan, the editor of U.S.-published Armenian Weekly, the aim of the event is forming a truthful atmosphere around the Genocide. He assured the organizers of the discussion are people who repeatedly stated they recognize Genocide. The mere fact won't be discussed.
According to Sait Chetin, a Georgian human rights activist, problems between the two countries can be solved only via dialog. He deplored that issues connected with interrelations between Armenians and Turks are discussed in many countries because both peoples are unable to talk to each other on the problems.
