ANKARA — Chairman of the U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Committee John Kerry stated in Ankara on Tuesday that resolution recognizing the Armenian Genocide will find greater support in the US Congress this year.
“Turkey is expected to face more difficulties. I can’t say what exactly is going to happen, but the Resolution will definitely have more supporters,” Kerry was reported as saying.
During his recent Middle East tour, John Kerry visited Turkey to meet with the country’s Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan. The 2-hour meeting focused on the recent tension in Turkish-Israeli relations, Iran’s nuclear issue and the deployment of NATO anti-missile elements.
The US official called on Turkey to overcome tensions with Israel and renew close ties to help with peace efforts in the Middle East.
“The region is in need of stability and peace,” Kerry underscored. According to him, Israel should be a part of this process. A tensed situation is of no benefit to anyone. We hope for Iran’s assistance on the matter. Iran should enter into a more responsible dialogue with the West, Kerry said.
