Time Magazine European Subscribers Get Turkish Take on Armenian Issue

ANKARA (Marmara)–According to the Turkish press–Time Magazine–one of the leading US news magazines–has distributed a Turkish documentary CD on Turkish-Armenian relations to its 494 thousand subscribers in Europe.

"The project’s target is not to respond to allegations of Armenia’s–but to give appropriate information about both the history of Turkish-Armenian relations and the Armenian issue. We aim to prevent distortion of historical events,” the chairman of the Ankara Chamber of Commerce (ATO)–Sinan Aygun–told a news conference.

The documentary–titled "Blonde Bride," is reportedly sponsored by the ATO.

According to Aygun–the 210 minute documentary has been prepared in Turkish–Russian–English–German–French–Spanish–and Arabic. He also revealed that the ATO has been working five months to pitch the "ad" to Time Magazine.

"This documentary CD is proof of Turkish pride–and we were able to secure funding for the approximately 1 million dollar venture purely through donations," Aygun said.

ATO said that Time Magazine has an additional 116 thousand copies of the CD for distribution.
