The term “Eastern Anatolia” doesn’t exist: Turkologist

YEREVAN, 10 FEBRUARY, ARMENPRESS. Associate professor of the Faculty of Oriental Studies at Yerevan State University, Turkologist Lusine Sahakyan says Armenians should be very active on the Internet and be able to give adequate responses to the false propaganda spread by circles of Turkologists. According to her, Turkish bloggers are working very actively on distorting Armenian toponyms and presenting Armenian words as words of Turkish origin on the Internet. In an interview with “Armenpress”, Lusine Sahakyan mentioned that there are especially several blogs and websites that the Turks have created ahead of the 100thanniversary of the Armenian Genocide and where they engage in heated debates over Armenian words and falsify Armenian history.

 In addition, Sahakyan emphasized that Armenia needs to address Western countries and the media to stop using the term “Eastern Anatolia”. “Eastern Anatolia doesn’t exist. It’s an artificial word. It’s absurd. Translated, it means “east of the east”. Armenia has a lot of work to do in this regard so that not only the real history is presented, but also the real toponyms are not distorted,” Lusine Sahakyan said.
