Armenian organizations received 2 million Euros worh of grants to promote Armenian-Turkish dialogue –
ARMENPRESS – The Armenia-based “Public Journalism Club”, “Centre for Regional Studies”, “Civilitas”, and “Eurasia” foundations have received a grant of EUR 2 million to hold programs dedicated to the Armenian-Turkish dialogue and reconciliation by April 2015. The expert in Turkish studies Ruben Melkonyan introduced facts proving this and noted that the “Hrant Dink” and “Anadolu” foundations are cooperating with Armenian funds.
Among other things, Ruben Melkonyan noted: “What I have introduced is a fact. Maybe there are honest people working for those foundations. I don’t think that everybody has negative intensions. Notwithstanding, it’s a fact that those organizations, which received the grant, are elements of Turkish state propaganda and aim at the same target along with the Turks.” Also, at the course of the press conference held on December 13, Melkonyan highlighted that more similar events will be held next year.
