Overwhelmingly Muslim Turkey's top religious authority Diyanet said it has published thousands of copies of the Koran translated into Armenian for the first time, as it seeks to reach out to minority communities.Yuksel Salman, director of Diyanet's religious publications office, denied the publication of the Muslim holy book in Armenian has any link to the 100th anniversary last month of mass killings of Armenians in the Ottoman Empire.Some 4,000 copies of the Koran have been published in the two primary eastern and western dialects of Armenian after four years of work.Salman's office has so far published the Koran in 16 languages, including Kurdish, the language of Turkey's biggest ethnic minority who make up around 20 percent of the population.
