The school children of Istanbul were handed over multi media manuals with maps where Armenia, several regions of Iraq, Bulgaria, Cyprus and Georgia were presented as a part of Turkey.
The CD with a map was created based on national educational program launched by the Ministry of Education, Milliyet newspaper reports.
The Ministry said that it “was shocked” and apologized for this mistake claiming they had no idea where it had been created. They said former head of Istanbul’s department on education Ata Ozer is responsible for the mistake.
First Deputy of Georgian MFA Nikoloz Vashakidze said Georgia is studying the reports, Gruziya Online reports.
