WASHINGTON–The Turkish ambassador to the US returned to Washington after being recalled to Ankara as part of Turkish reactions to a vote on the Armenian Genocide Resolution at a US Congressional Committee. Before his departure he expressed cautious optimism that the "Armenian resolution" issue would be resolved.
"After nine days I am now returning to my post. I think the time I was in Ankara is a good message that shows the disappointment Turkey felt with respect to the passage of resolution No. 106 in the US House committee," said Ambassador Nabi Sensoy.
"My most important message will be to explain the great disappointment and frustration that the developmen’s over the Armenian resolution caused among the Turkish people. I will convey the sensitivities of President Gul and the government officials to them once again," Sensoy told the journalists before leaving.
