      Note from VirtualAni: this report is merely false Armenian propaganda. The World Armenian Congress's assesment of the condition of the Aght'amar church is not factually correct. Also, given the very low standard of previous restorations in Turkey, all calls for a restoration of this church should be totally rejected.

      World Armenian Congress worried over church destruction

      MOSCOW

      The World Armenian Congress has expressed concern over the condition
      of the Akhtamar Saint Cross Church - a unique monument of medieval
      Armenian architecture, which is situated in Turkey, on an island in
      Lake Van.

      The Saint Cross Church was built in 915-921, says a statement of the
      World Armenian Congress received by Itar-Tass. It is so much
      dilapidated now that "soon only ruins will be left of it."

      The World Armenian Congress urged the Turkish and Armenian
      governments to take steps without delay for restoring the Akhtamar
      Saint Cross Church and to hold talks with the participation of
      international experts from UNESCO for outlining measures to be taken
      for restoring this and other Armenian architectural monuments on the
      Turkish territory.
