Armenian history textbooks must cover ASALA activities – public figure

PanARMENIAN.Net - Armenian history textbooks must dwell on the activities of Armenian Secret Army for the Liberation of Armenia (ASALA), head of “In Ancestral Footsteps” NGO said.

As Arman Mkhitaryan told a press conference, Armenian authorities find it inappropriate to present ASALA activities in the textbooks, due to its being considered a terrorist organization by several international organizations.

“ASALA has always punished specific persons, never having claimed innocent victims,” he said, adding that fallen ASALA members are buried in Yerablur military cemetery, as a testament to their being warriors.

Tribute will be paid to ASALA martyrs on August 7.
