Azerbaijan, Baku / corr. Trend S.Agayeva / Doctor of Economic Sciences, Professor of the Academy of Sciences of Georgia, Anzor Totadze, informed Trend that there has been no analogue of such disrespect for a neighboring country, falsification of the history of the people and crude attempt to appropriate its cultural heritages as is demonstrated in the actions of Armenian pseudo-scientists. According to Totadze, the Armenian academician Suren Ayvazyan and others are the authors of many vulgar falsifications of historical facts.
"According to Ayvazyan, Georgia has been created within the territory of North Armenia, and Azerbaijan created on the territory of East Armenia. He tries to prove that by claiming that Bakurakert ( Baku) has been the capital of East Armenia for many years. In addition, he claims that Armenia was created in 2107 BC," Totadze said.
"According to these pseudo-scientists, the whole South Caucasus has been represented by Armenia for millennia and this idea fully corresponds with the morbid wish of the Armenian scientists. All falsifications lead to Armenian terrorist claims towards Jevaheti," Totadze stressed. The Georgian scientist fully refuted the statement of Armenian scientists by saying that in 1595, 95% of the population of Jevaheti was settled by the Georgians. According to Totadze, for the first time, the Armenians who were removed from Turkey appeared there in autumn of 1829. The historical fact is that in 1829-1831, 25,000 Armenians flowed to Samtskhe-Jevaheti. He said that presently nearly 70,000 Armenians live in Jevaheti and 250,000 in Georgia.
"Nagorno-Karabakh is the territory of Azerbaijan and Jevaheti of Georgia, but not Armenia," Totadze said. The scientist considers the statements of the Armenian scientists to be dangerous and calls on the international community to take measures. He highly assessed the active role of the Human Rights Institute of the Azerbaijan National Academy of Sciences in this process. One of the activity directions of the Institute headed by Rovshan Mustafayev is to discover Armenian chauvinism which presents a real threat to the South Caucasus.
