Turkish Parliament Prepares to Vote On Law Dealing With International Calls for Genocide Recognition

ISTANBUL (Marmara)–Chairman of the Foreign Affairs Committee of the Turkish parliament–Kamran Inan–has prepared a bill which was passed by his committee and passed on for review by the parliament’s Interior Affairs Committee. If the bill is ratified by parliament–it will consider any calls for recognition of the Armenian Genocide an "enemy action" against Turkey since the Armenian Genocide has "no historical proof."

The bill is comprised of nine articles and targets those calls for international recognition of the Armenian Genocide. The bill also condemns France for instilling rebellious sentimen’s among the Armenia’s of the Ottoman Empire during World War I.

The bill also condemns ASALA for its activities in the past–the "occupation" of Karabakh and Azerbaijani territories–the forced migration of the inhabitants of these regions–and the use of military means to expand territory.
