ATIAD sends letter on Armenian resolution to CDU leader
March 1 2005
The Association of Turkish Businessmen & Industrialists in Europe
(ATIAD) said on Tuesday that the real goal of the resolution on
so-called Armenian genocide to be submitted to the German federal
parliament by CDU/CSU in April was to slander Turkey.In the letter
it sent to Christian Democrat Union (CDU) leader Angela Merkel,
ATIAD said, “the real goal of your party is to disgrace Turkey,
which you want to exclude from the EU (European Union).
It is a shame to make alleged incidents that occurred 90 years ago
a tool for your internal policy and party policy.”
ATIAD stated that Turkey had entered a path of no return, and would
become an EU member whether the CDU and CSU wanted it or not.
