ANKARA—Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu held a phone conversation with U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry on Wednesday to discuss resolutions urging Turkey to recognize the Armenian Genocide pending in the US Senate and the House of Representatives, reported Hurriyet Daily News.
“We don’t have a negative expectation [for the outcome of the draft resolution],” Davutoglu told reporters in Ankara Thursday, adding that the two had also discussed developments in Syria and Egypt.
The Turkish government is taking measures against “initiatives that will bother Turkey. We hope they will not take such an attitude,” he also said.
Last week senators Robert Menendez (D-NJ) and Mark Kirk (R-Ill.) introduced a bill urging Turkey to recognize the Armenian Genocide.
