US Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for NATO and European Affairs
Dan Fata declared that the adoption of the Armenian Genocide
resolution `will create nationalist and anti-American moods among the
Turkish society, which is not of high opinion about the United States
even without it,’ Mediamax agency reports.

Dan Fata said this during the hearings on the `American-Turkish
relations and future challenges’ in the US House of Representatives.

`The adoption of the Armenian Genocide resolution will have a number
of negative consequences. In particular, the reaction of Turkey will
damage the US continuous efforts to reconcile Turkey and Armenia, will
hamper the military actions of the US in Iraq and Afghanistan and will
cause harm to important issues of national security.

The passage of the bill will create nationalist and anti-American
moods among the Turkish society, which is not of high opinion about
the United States even without it. Such emotional reaction will most
probably make the Turkish Government take steps that can cause
considerable harm to our activities in Iraq and Afghanistan. Turkey
has considerable contribution to the global fight against corruption
and the defense of US rights in the region, and all this will be
endangered. If we speak in a broader scope, serious damage will be
caused to the relations with NATO, which will considerably harm the
opportunities of the US to reach its short-term and long-term
targets,’ the US Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense stated.

“I should like to see any power of the world destroy this race, this small tribe of unimportant people, whose wars have all been fought and lost, whose structures have crumbled, literature is unread, music is unheard, and prayers are no more answered. Go ahead, destroy Armenia . See if you can do it. Send them into the desert without bread or water. Burn their homes and churches. Then see if they will not laugh, sing and pray again. For when two of them meet anywhere in the world, see if they will not create a New Armenia.” - WS
