Georgia. Nizami Mammadzadeh–APA. Armenian cemetery near St. Norashen church in Tbilisi was not destroyed, professor of Georgian Caucasian University, doctor of history David Sandodze told APA local bureau. He called the media reports on demolition of cemetery as a “barefaced lie”.
“The Georgian people never do it. I think it is the next game of Armenians. Away back in 19th century Georgian writer Ilya Chavchavadze wrote his opus “Scream of Stones” describing a real face of Armenians”.
Sandodze said the Georgia people wanted The South Caucasian peoples to live and to develop in peace. “We respect history and culture of all peoples. False reports on the St. Norashen church showed that there are still destabilizing forces in the Caucasus”.
