Gul Warns Norway Genocide Museum to Consider Turkey’s Feelings

ANKARA (Armenpress)–Turkish Foreign Minister Abdullah Gul "warned" Norwegian State Secretary Kim Traavik about the inclusion of an Armenian genocide exhibit in a museum to be inaugurated on August 30 in Oslo. The prime minister expressed that "the museum will deeply hurt the Turkish people."

Turkish-based Milliyet newspaper wrote that in response to Gul–Traavik said the museum will be funded by a private foundation–rendering the government no right to interfere. Milliyet also reported that the museum will open on the initiative of a history professor at Bergen University. The museum–which will open on Turkey’s Victory Day–will present exhibits on the Armenian genocide in 1915 and the Holocaust.
