Gul Warns US Over Anti-Turkish Resolution

WASHINGTON–Turkey’s Foreign Minister has again warned the US that a resolution before Congress recognizing the so-called Armenian genocide would damage Turkish-US relations if passed. In Washington for talks with senior US officials, Foreign Minister Abdullah Gul met with John Murtha, the chairman of defense sub-committee of the House of Representatives Appropriations Committee, and House majority leader, Congressman Steny Hoyer late Wednesday Turkish time. During both meetings Gul said that the resolution tabled before the US House of Representatives constitutes a threat to relations between the two countries. Gul later held talks with Congressman Robert Wexler, co-chairman of the Turkish- American Friendship Group Tom Lantos, the chairman of the House Committee on Foreign Relations, and Congressman Roy Blunt.
