RECOGNITION OF FALSE “ARMENIAN GENOCIDE” SERIOUSLY TO DAMAGE US-TURKISH RELATIONS
There is no doubt that recognition by the US Congress House of Representatives of this false genocide will cause series of problems in bilateral relations, the Ambassador said. According to him, these problems can appear in the relations with Israel, too.
Mr. Nabi Shensoy recommended the Jewish Anti-Defamation League in America to remain neutral in this question as well. This step of the Jewish group would also exert influence on position of their compatriots in Turkey, he emphasized. The Ambassador said: “They forget the events taken place 500 years ago between the Turks and Jews. At that time, the Turks saved the chased Jews and granted asylum to them. We always gave importance to the relations with Jews and the Jewish community in Turkey is an integral part of our society”, he underlined.
Meanwhile, during the expected visit of the Turkish Premier Recep Tayyip Erdogan to the United States, the mentioned questions will also be in the focus, the reports say.
