Aram I will not participate in Holy Cross church mass in Akhtamar

PanARMENIAN.Net - Catholicos of the Great House of Cilicia His Holiness Aram I refused to participate in the mass at Holy Cross church in Akhtamar island.

Continuing with the Genocide denial policy, Turkey just makes a show of tolerance to deceive the international community, said the press office of the Catholicosate of Cilicia.

“Turkey attempts to exploit the Armenian nation for its political purposes, once again practicing deception. Yet, it’s common knowledge that over 2000 Armenian churches situated in Western Armenia and Cilicia lie in ruins. Turkey can deceive no one by turning a single church into a tourist facility and museum. The Catholicos of the Great House of Cilicia will always be demanding recognition of Armenian Genocide and indemnification for moral and material damages from Turkey,” the statement said.
