Turkish-Armenian journalist Etyen Mahcupyan has been appointed the chief advisor to Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu.
Davutoglu offered the post to Mahcupyan last week, on the sidelines of a meeting of the intellectuals’ council. Mahcupyan accepted the offer, according to Sabah daily.
It is noted that Mahcupyan will deal with the settlement of the Armenian issues.
He headed Agos weekly for some time after Hrant Dink’s assassination, and gained wide public recognition.
