Public Forum on Armeno-Turkish Relations to Feature Evans, Hachikian, Hovannisian, and Papazian

NEW YORK (A.W.)—On March 7, a public forum titled “Armeno-Turkish Relations: Pitfalls and Possibilities” will be held in New York. Organized by the New York and New Jersey committees of the Armenian Revolutionary Federation (ARF), the forum will feature former U.S. Ambassador to Armenia John Evans, ANCA chairman Ken Hachikian, the chair in Modern Armenian History at UCLA Richard Hovannisian, and emeritus professor of History at UMich-Dearborn Dennis Papazian.

The public forum will take place at the New York Hilton Hotel, 1335 Ave. of the Americas (at 53rd St), at 4:30 p.m. It is free and open to the public.

For more information, contact the ARF by calling (718) 651-1530 or (201) 945-0011.


  1. Can someone explain to me why each time John Evans speaks, his message is: no reparation, no restitution and no land, only acknowledgment.  Is he the arbiter of how Turkey should be held accountable for the crime of genocide?  (This is in line with US State Department, TARC, and the likes of David Phillips, et. al.)
    **  Genocide acknowledgment with accountability  **

  2. Evans represents the US political establishment and he was place within our community to do their bidding. The Armenian Assembly is also a tool of the US State Department. I wouldn’t be surprised if the same is true of the ANC…

  3. As Mr. Jololian points out, the goal of the US State Department and the reconciliation groupies, such as David Philips, is to obtain for Armenians a half-baked acknowledgment of genocide, on one condition: that Armenians give up all rights to reparations and territory.  Is is worth it?  To some half-baked Armenians and the reconciliation groupies (some Armenian academicians are among them) it is.
