United Internet - resource for Armenian and Turkish mass media will be established in 2010

YEREVAN, December 21. /ARKA/. “Establishment of united Internet-resource for publication and mutual use of Armenian and Turkish jounalists will be implemented in 2010”, said Artak Shakaryan, specialist in Turkic philology to the journalists of ARKA.

“The main problem of delay of the creation of such a resource is shortage of funding, as daily volume of translation material is rather large - 10-12 pages”, he said. Idea of creation of Internet-resource occurred during the meeting of managers and editors of leading Armenian and Turkish mass media in Turkish city Bursa on October 13-14, 2009 which took place in the frames of the project funded by the Fund “Eurasia – cooperation”, Government of Norway and USAID.

Return visit of Turkish journalists to Armenia was on December 17-20, 2009. The first step was made in the creation of such an Internet-resource.

“ Fund “Eurasia – cooperation” funded the Fund “Civilitas” which translates one or two Turkish articles about Armenia and Armenians into Armenian weekly, starting from September 2009, as well as Armenian articles about Turkey into Turkish and publishes in the site”, he said.

Diplomatic relations between Armenia and Turkey are lacking. Armenian-Turkish border was closed since 1993 by the official initiative of Ankara.

Complicated relations between two countries were due to the fact that Ankara supported Azerbaijan in Karabakh problem and also an acute reaction of Turkey on the process of international recognition of Armenian Genocide of 1915 in Ottoman Empire. --0—
