ARMENIAN GENOCIDE RECOGNITION BENEFICIAL FOR TURKEY, SAYS AZERBAIJANI MP
16:54 ~U 04.02.10
The recognition of the Armenian Genocide by the US Congress will be
beneficial for Turkey, said Azerbaijani MP Gudrat Hasanguliev in an
interview with Day.az.
"The US Congress always blackmails Ankara for the Armenian Genocide.
In that way, they want to take Turkey’s foreign policy under control.
Naturally, it is not excluded that the Congress may pass such a
resolution, but that is less likely as it would put an end to the
Turkish-American strategic cooperation," said Hasanguliev, who thinks
that Turkey will be released from American control completely, should
Congress recognize the Genocide.
"I think Turkey will be released from Washington’s blackmails and
will be able to pursue a freer foreign policy, should the Congress
recognize the Genocide," said Hasanguliev.
