THE TERM "EASTERN ANATOLIA" DOESN'T EXIST: TURKOLOGIST

17:38, 10 February, 2015

YEREVAN, 10 FEBRUARY, ARMENPRESS. Associate professor of the Faculty
of Oriental Studies at Yerevan State University, Turkologist Lusine
Sahakyan says Armenians should be very active on the Internet and
be able to give adequate responses to the false propaganda spread by
circles of Turkologists. According to her, Turkish bloggers are working
very actively on distorting Armenian toponyms and presenting Armenian
words as words of Turkish origin on the Internet. In an interview with
"Armenpress", Lusine Sahakyan mentioned that there are especially
several blogs and websites that the Turks have created ahead of the
100thanniversary of the Armenian Genocide and where they engage in
heated debates over Armenian words and falsify Armenian history.

In addition, Sahakyan emphasized that Armenia needs to address
Western countries and the media to stop using the term "Eastern
Anatolia". "Eastern Anatolia doesn't exist. It's an artificial word.

It's absurd. Translated, it means "east of the east". Armenia has a
lot of work to do in this regard so that not only the real history
is presented, but also the real toponyms are not distorted," Lusine
Sahakyan said.
