I am one of the people who signed that apology. As a human being, I felt sorry for the death of innocent people, women and children during forced emigration, though it was caused by the betrayal and attacks of Armenian marauders supported by Russian and England.
This is not accepting that so-called genocide. If there was genocide, it was perpetrated by those Armenian marauders. 13 members of my mother’s family were killed. They were old men, women and children. I have never hated Armenians. It was a war like everywhere in the world and actually, Armenians started that war and killed thousands of innocent people, woman and children without reason.
Even recently, in Hodjali/Azerbaijan, thousands of innocent people and children were killed by Armenians. These are hard facts known by all the world.
If those who claim so are sure that there was genocide, Turkey is ready to open all the archives to debate the matter with historians and the related authorities.
Let’s open our and your state archives and examine all documents. But that problem must be solved anyway. The continuance of this problem damages Armenia much more than Turkey.
I hope that one day common sense will prevail among the Armenian diaspora and that we can leave everything in the past and live in brotherhood, as both our nations have done for centuries.
