France's foreign minister today said that his country could host a Turkish-Armenian joint history commission meeting.

Alain Juppe defined the incidents of 1915 as a challenging issue, and all countries were making a memory homework about their history.

Such a memory homework could be done in a history commission, Juppe told a joint press conference with Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutolu in Ankara.

Juppe defined those days as a troublesome for both Turkey and Armenia, and said France may host a joint history meeting.

The French foreign minister expressed thought that a significant progress could be made in such a meeting.

Davutolu, in his part, said Turkey had accepted Juppe's call for establishment of a joint history commission to investigate incidents of 1915.

"We are ready to discuss our own history and other countries' history in an atmosphere of mutual respect and freedom," he said.

Davutolu said however, Turkey was against laws and resolutions that would make its self-defense impossible, and noted that there was such a resolution at the French Senate today.

"Implementation of this resolution is against French intellectual tradition and freedom of thought," Davutolu said.

Davutolu said Turkey would welcome any initiative from France regarding establishment of a joint history commission between Turkey and Armenia, and hoped that it would contribute to Turkish-Armenian rapprochement and normalize relations.

In 2005, Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoan sent a letter to the then Armenian President Robert Kocharyan and proposed to establish a joint commission of historians to study the Ottoman-era incidents of 1915.

Armenians would actually have to defend their accusations in front of professional historians and not just show there sob stories to politicians?

No need to go anywhere.
All turks need to do is, produce the Relocation records, accounting for each individual relocated, died or murdered and come up trumps.
So simple.

Why don't Turks have a joint-history commission with Germany first ?

http://www.armenocide.net/armenocide/armgende...

Once you have shown that the Germans are liars, then you can have a joint-history commission with Armenians.

No Armenian will object to that deal!

The Armenians owed no loyalty to Turkish rulers after the wholesale massacres of Armenians in 1894-1897 and 1909. You Turks get hysterical over a few hundreds deaths in Cyprus but the Armenians suffered over a hundred times worse massacres. But somehow you expect loyalty from Armenians!!!!!

Turkish leaders promised equality for all races in the empire but in 1913 a racist Turkish clique took power in a coup.(Did you know Cyprus had a coup in 1974 ?) But somehow you expect loyalty from Armenians!!!!!

champion65, British MPs once asked Turks for a joint history meeting after Turkish MPs accused Britain of war-time propaganda.

"Lord Avebury, Vice-Chair of the Parliamentary Human Rights Group, said today:

I very much regret the failure of every one of the 550 MPs of the Turkish Grand National Assembly (TGNA) to reply to an invitation to discuss the events of 1915-16, in which a million and a half Armenian subjects of the Ottoman Empire lost their lives.

Following a Letter from the TGNA to the British Parliament challenging the veracity of the evidence published by the British Government in 1916 in the Blue Book ‘The Treatment of Armenians in the Ottoman Empire 1915-16’, a group of MPs and peers wrote proposing a dialogue between British and Turkish MPs, with academic experts on both sides, to examine the authenticity of that evidence.

When no reply was received, I wrote to every Turkish MP individually, asking if they would be willing to participate in such a dialogue. Not a single one replied.

Since neither the TGNA collectively, nor any of its Members, was ready to defend their position in an open and critical forum, it obviously would not stand up to an intellectually rigorous examination. I believe the original Letter was an attempt to stimulate wider Turkish denialism, rather than to establish communication between Turkish and UK Parliamentarians which might have clarified interpretation of the events of 1915-16. But the invitation remains open, and I hope that by publishing this statement, I may yet prompt some Turkish MPs with the courage to engage in dialogue. "
