Turkish diplomats martyred by Armenian terrorist organisations such as ASALA and JCAG are being commemorated by the Presidency's Directorate of Communications with an exhibition inaugurated simultaneously in Los Angeles and İstanbul on April 24.
Organised by the Presidency's Directorate of Communications, the "Martyr Diplomats Exhibition" opened on April 24, 2021, in Los Angeles, the place of duty of the first martyrs by the Armenian terrorist organisations such as ASALA and JCAG attacks against Turkish diplomats. The exhibition at İstanbul Sirkeci Station held simultaneously with the exhibition in Los Angeles will be on display until May 30.
In his Twitter message regarding the launch of the "Martyr Diplomats Exhibition", Presidency's Director of Communications Fahrettin Altun said, "We condemn Armenian terrorist organisations!"
The exhibition held in Los Angeles attracts great interest
The exhibition that opened its doors simultaneously in Los Angeles, the first place where the Armenian terrorist organisations martyred the Turkish diplomats, has been visited by representatives from Pakistan and Syria as well as many citizens, including Türkiye’s Consul General to Los Angeles Can Oğuz and Azerbaijan’s Consul General in Los Angeles Nasimi Agayev.
Consul General to Los Angeles Can Oğuz expressed that such exhibitions were very important in terms of reminding the American public the treacherous acts of Armenian terrorist organisations and recalling the glorious memories of our martyr diplomats.
Following Istanbul and Los Angeles, the Martyr Diplomats Exhibition was opened in Washington, the capital of the United States of America (USA). The exhibition dedicated to Turkish diplomats who, despite threats and attacks from Armenian terrorist organisations between 1973 and 1984, did not leave their posts and were martyred in the process, attracted attention in Washington as well.
The next stop of the exhibition is New York. In the post shared on his social media account Director of Communications Altun said, "The Martyr Diplomats Exhibition organized by the Directorate of Communications and devoted to our diplomats and their family members martyred in heinous attacks by Armenian terrorist organizations opens in New York today, following Los Angeles, İstanbul and Washington".
The assassination of Türkiye's Consul General in Los Angeles Mehmet Baydar and Consul Bahadır Demir by an American of Armenian origin in the United States in 1973 marked the beginning of organised terrorist attacks against Turkish diplomats.
In the attacks organised by Armenian terrorist organisations such as ASALA and JCAG in the 1970s and after, 58 Turkish citizens, 31 of whom were diplomats and their family members, were martyred. In total, 77 lives were lost, and many more were injured.
The "Martyr Diplomats Exhibition" of the Presidency's Directorate of Communications is dedicated to Turkish diplomats who, despite threats and attacks from Armenian terrorist organisations between 1973 and 1984, did not leave their posts and were martyred in the process.
Systematic and organised terrorist attacks
All the details of systematic terrorist attacks and assassinations targeting well-trained and equipped officials representing Türkiye all over the world are displayed in the exhibition.
In the exhibition, there are boards showing the terrorist attacks and assassinations by Armenian terrorists with country and city-based graphics and a timeline.
The exhibition also includes some exclusive images depicting the stories of our martyred diplomats, as well as photos created with high resolution using artificial intelligence technologies.
It also details Türkiye's attempts to uncover the facts about the events of 1915
In the exhibition held on April 24, the date on which the Armenian lobby and some countries attempt to fuel the so-called "Armenian genocide" slander intentionally for the sake of their political calculations, Türkiye's efforts to clarify and reveal the facts about the events of 1915 are also detailed.
Director of Communications Altun shared a video about the massacres by the Armenian terrorist organisations
In a post shared on his social media account, Director of Communications Altun shared a video about the massacres by the Armenian terrorist organisations such as ASALA and JCAG and noted the following:
"Armenian terrorist organisations slaughtered tens of civilians, including Azerbaijani, French, Swedish and US citizens, along with Turkish citizens by organising a series of assassinations, armed attacks and bombings. We commemorate terror victims in İstanbul and Los Angeles with exhibitions as of today."
