Young Turks & ARF

Despite the Adana Massacres, the Armenian Revolutionary Federation (ARF) decided that the best strategy for Ottoman Armenians was to continue cooperating with the Young Turks. Thus the Young Turks and the ARF made the following joint declaration: “Considering that saving the sacred Ottoman fatherland from separation and division is an objective of the two organizations’ joint cooperation, they will work to practically dispel within public opinion the false story inherited from the despotic regime that the Armenians strive for independence.”
