Turkish Women Deputies Postpone Trip to Armenia

ANKARA (Armenpress)–A delegation of Turkish women deputies announced on March 5 they are postponing their trip to Armenia–which had been scheduled for March 8.

They said the trip–organized by the Turkish-Armenian Women Communication Group–was being delayed due to the recent decision of the European Parliament concerning the so-called Armenian Genocide.

Turkish and Armenian women were supposed to convene in Yerevan in an attempt of public diplomacy to improve bilateral relations.

The 15-member group–comprised of women journalists–parliamentarians and academicians–were to meet with Hermine Naghdalian of the Armenian Parliament on March 8–on World Women’s Day.
