He said the monument erected in memory of the Turks massacred by Armenians, which is the highest monument in Turkey, would also be highlighted in the Al Jazeera program.
The TV channel's team had conducted an interview with Ali Asker Turk, a witness to the massacre, in Igdir. They also shot scenes in Oba village, where 97 Turks were burnt alive by Armenians.
