European Union Initiative
Aravot: “Inciting hostility and murderous instincts is absurd.”
On July 18, public presentation of the program “Support to the Armenia-Turkey Normalization Process” was held. The program was implemented by a consortium consisting of eight non-governmental organizations of Armenia and Turkey, under the financial assistance by the European Union. The program launched since January 2014.

When the program was announced, it started to be discussed on the Internet not only in a positive light, people were happy that the Armenia-Turkey relations after freezing the Armenian-Turkish protocols continue to evolve, and have not been stopped, but also in a negative light, some circles considered that ahead to the 100th anniversary of the Genocide, the European Union is funding the Armenia-Turkey normalization process so that the Genocide issue would not have great resonance, and everybody points out, look, what sound relations these two countries’ civil societies establish, no need to squeeze “into the finger and the ring.” Please click here to read the full article.
