YEREVAN (Yerkir/PanArmenian.Net)–The Armenian and Turkish Ambassadors to Italy–Ruben Shugaryan and Ugur Ziyal–discussed the Armenian genocide Monday on Italian TV.
The five minute dialogue was broadcast on RAI Italian TV Channel.
Turkish Ambassador Ugur Ziyal initiated the discussion. He stated that the Italian channel often features programming about the Armenian genocide.
He called these programs one-sided–because they only reflect the stance of the Armenian party.
"We want Turkey’s stance to be presented as well," Ziyal said.
He also noted that the Turkish party wrote to Armenian Ambassador Ruben Shugaryan asking him to participate. Shugaryan agreed.
