The Greek Ministry of Education, which decided to have the textbook published in England “inappropriate and unacceptable” and decided to have it confiscated, attacked Atatürk with ugly language in a written statement. Recalling that the Turks are preparing to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the “Little Asia Disaster” (the name given to the War of Independence by the Greeks and Greeks) next year, the Greek Ministry of Education has said: “Atatürk is not a leader to be praised in the books. Atatürk, as we know him, is directly linked to the Armenian genocide, which is recognized in the USA, France and many countries around the world. He claimed that the genocide against the Pontic Greeks and Assyrians is linked to the ethnic cleansing of the Hellenes (Greeks) in Izmir and the surrounding areas.


Minister of National Defense Hulusi Akar, who attended a symposium hosted by 9 Eylül University in Izmir with TRNC chairman Ersin Tatar, reacted to the decision to tear up the English textbook page on Atatürk in the Greek Cypriot part. Akar said, “This is yet another example of a distorted and hostile mindset. This event clearly shows who and what we are dealing with. We vehemently reject, vehemently condemn. Really give up, ”he said.
