Speaking in the eastern Turkish city of Kars at a conference on Turkish history this week, controversial academician and head of the Turkish Historical Council, Professor Yusuf Halacoglu, said "Armenian gangs in the east of Turkey massacred 532,000 Turks."
Halacoglu, noting that millions of people had lost their lives during World War I, asserted this week "There was total destruction in the Caucuses. 2.5 million people were forced to migrate. In 1914, a full 80% of Yerevan was Muslim. Those driven out of Yerevan and Tblisi numbered 1,300,000. Only 701,000 of these Muslims were able to reach Anatolia safely."
Asked Halacoglu "What name should be given to all the Muslims who were killed during this period? The western parliaments which have accepted the allegations of so-called genocide need to think about this."
