Head of the Center of Studies of Anatolian history Mehmet Avdjier condemned the representatives of intellectuals, who launched a campaign to apologize to Armenians at a press conference, reports Day.Az with reference to Turkish Cihan news agency.
He reminded that beginning from Balkan wars and especially in period of the first World War in 1915-1916 Anatolia was in blockade and said the following: "At that time Armenian gangs in cooperation with Russian troops committed genocide against Muslim Turks. In these years Russian and Englishmen drew an Armenian map in Eastern Anatolia. Filled with dreams about this map, under support of the occupational forces the gangs killed 215,000 Turks in Van. 45,000 in Kars and its suburbs, 68,000 in Bitlis and suburbs, 30,000 in Erzirum and suburbs, 21,000 in Mush and suburbs, 14,000 in Agri. In other words, 517,955 Muslim Turks were killed and buried.
It is true that in January of 1992 Armenian servicemen under support of Russian troops killed 1,300 people in Azerbaijani city of Khojaly, including 106 women and 300 children and during this genocide they argued about the gender of the unborn children of pregnant women and killed them by ripping up their abdominals".
