Ancient Azeri town: Shusha
Armenians seek to turn ancient Azeri town into their ‘cultural center’
Baku, April 5, AssA-Irada
Armenian separatists are trying to turn Azerbaijan’s ancient town of Shusha into their own cultural center and plan to carry out this outrageous plan by holding an electronic referendum.
“Every Armenian will be able to access a special website and voice his opinion on the issue to facilitate the town’s turning into a scientific, cultural and tourism center for not only Upper (Nagorno) Garabagh and Armenia, but also all world Armenians,” the head of the self-styled Shusha Foundation, Bakor Karapetian, maintained.
Armenian scholars trying to distort history have discovered items dating back to the 12th century as well as the ancient Turkic period during their archaeological excavations in the territory of Shusha. The Armenian Catholic Church in Beirut, Lebanon had allocated $25,000 for the purpose.
