US historian Professor Justin McCarthy has said that Turkey has published crucial documents and books refuting allegations of the Armenian genocide, but that the West is not aware of them.

Saying that the reality is not in Tashnak newspapers, but in the Ottoman archives, McCarthy underlined the importance of a book titled "Atrocities Committed by Armenians towards the Turks and the Archive Records of the Genocide", published recently by the Turkish Parliament. McCarthy stated: "This important book, which was written by a big delegation including myself and is in storage in the Parliament right now. It should be on sale or distributed or even thrown from the air by plane… It should be read by as many people as possible.""
