ANKARA (A.A) -07.02.2007 -Head of a Turkish parliamentary committee
on foreign affairs said Wednesday that visit of a parliamentary
delegation to the USA was postponed.
Recalling that Foreign Minister Abdullah Gul was currently in the USA
and that Chief of General Staff Gen. Yasar Buyukanit was due to visit
this country later on, Mehmet Dulger stated that the delegation’s USA
visit was postponed in order to take sometime to assess the outcome
from Gul’s and Buyukanit’s talks with American officials.
Dulger set no specific timetable for the visit but said it would take
place soon, adding that three separate groups of Turkish legislators
would go the USA on different dates.
Dulger also underlined that the visits were not cancelled.
"We will go there and speak of our concerns," Dulger said.
"Particularly we will try to prevent the approval of a bill on
so-called Armenian allegations."
