Grateful letters written to Ottoman sultans by Armenians living in Anatolia in those times will be important trump cards in favor of Turkey.
A letter of thanks sent to the Ottoman Sultan Abdulhamit II by Armenians has drawn attraction. This letter refutes genocide claims and has been displayed in an exhibition since Nov. 14 in the Turkish Parliament.
The works in the exhibition drew attention to the freedoms Ottoman sultans provided for different religious groups.
The letter, written on behalf of the Armenian community sent to Abdulhamit II, stated that Ottoman sultans respected Armenians as well as other groups, adding they would never stop working for the Ottoman Empire despite some insurgents and their lies.
Speaker of the Turkish Parliament Bulent Arinc felt that the exhibition proved Ottoman tolerance with concrete examples and was crucial material for the Alliance of Civilizations project.
Dossiers to be Forwarded Abroad
The Turkish parliament commission in charge of European Union adaptation is determined to forward the dossiers in the exhibition to EU politicians.
Meanwhile, at the request of the EU Adaptation Commission, the Turkish State Archives head office has gathered a collection of peace agreements that the Ottoman Empire made with Western countries, as well as edicts announced for non-Muslims.Güncelleme Tarihi: 20 Eylül 2018, 18:16
