Turkey And Armenia Seek To Create Positive Relations

Leaders of Turkey and Armenia are trying to establish the basis of friendly relations between the two nations in order to ensure that hatred of the past does not live on into the 21st century. Both nations are holding discussions at the United Nations in order to create the basis of how they can interact with one another in the future. There is talk of establishing a joint committee of historians which would finally resolve the issue as to whether or not there was a genocide against the Armenian people earlier in the 20th century. The issue of genocide continues to be a divisive issue between the nations and prevents conditions of good will from emerging.

The two groups are still in early stages of discussions. Perhaps, it might be wise to draw upon historians from the European Union or the United States in order to obtain an accurate evaluation of the genocide issue. There are sufficient number of scholars who could draft a statement on the issue.
