      FAAE IS CONCERNED OVER LEGITIMACY OF UNESCO'S DECISION TO REMOVE PLACARDS

      Panorama

      The President of the Forum of Armenian Associations of Europe (FAAE)
      Dr Ashot Grigorian sent second address to UNESCO Secretariat and its
      Director General Ms Irina Bokova. The message reads:

      "Dear Ms Bokova we refer to our letter of 17-th June 2011 and the
      scandalous event surrounding the exhibition of Armenian khachkars in
      Paris referred to therein to which we have not received a reply to
      date. Once again we raise our concerns over the legitimacy of UNESCO's
      sudden decision to remove the placards describing the locations of
      individual khachkars and the dubious motives behind this absurd action.

      The Forum of Armenian Associations of Europe, an umbrella organization
      representing Armenian organizations and institutions across Europe,
      conveys its extreme disappointment in the lack of response to the
      concerns raised and notes that the deliberate deletion of locations
      of the khachkars and the subsequent lack of explanation by UNESCO
      is seen as provocation and will continue to attract negative media
      attention until this issue is addressed.

      FAAE has begun an online petition to raise further awareness on this
      matter and collect signatures in support of FAAE's efforts to bring
      this outrageous incident to the height of media attention and demand
      public explanation.

      Should UNESCO continue to display indifference to the concerns raised,
      FAAE will take further action to hold those responsible to account
      and publicize this shameful act in the media worldwide."
