Vandalized Armenian church to be reconstructed in Turkey’s Mush

PanARMENIAN.Net - Plans for reconstruction of the vandalized St. Marine Church in Armenian district of Mush have been announced, with preparatory works and search of sponsors in progress, the Turkish town’s mayor Feyat Asya said.

According to Agos Armenian-Turkish weekly, destruction of the Armenian district started back in summer 2013, with only walls of the church left standing today.

The Church was a part of the St. Apostles monastery complex, fully destroyed in 2015.

During the 2011 election campaign Turkey’s Justice and Development Party (AKP) announced a “4 years, 400 projects” program for reconstruction of historical monuments.
