New Armenian newspaper to be launched in Istanbul

New Armenian biweekly, Luys, will be launched in Istanbul, Turkish newspaper Taraf reports. Newspaper’s editor-in-chief Sahnur Kazanci told Taraf’s correspondent that the newspaper will cover the events that occur in the Armenian, Greek, Jewish and Assyrian communities of Turkey.

“We, Armenians, have long been living side by side with Assyrians and Greeks. Significant events occur in our lives such as birthdays, engagements, christenings. These are the happy moments of life. So why not to cover them?” said the editor.

The newspaper will consist of 28 pages. Only one page will be in Armenian. The editor added that the name of the biweekly – Luys (“light”) – symbolizes a positive direction.
