Azerbaijan, Baku, 28 January /corr. Trend F.Rzayev, K.Ramazanova / The USA will not allow the recognition of the 'Armenian genocide' by Turks at the beginning of the last century, said Norman Stone, Assistant to former Prime Minister of Great Britain.
"These are political statements. We all know politicians have to say things and then do something different," Stone said in Baku on 28 January.
Candidates from the Democratic Party, senator Hillary Clinton and Barak Obama, called upon the Congress to pass Resolution No 106, promising to recognize the 'Armenian genocide' in Ottoman Turkey at the beginning of the last century if they are elected as President of the USA.
The resolution was presented to the House of Representatives on 30 January 2007 by Adam Shiff under pressure from the Armenian lobby in the USA. The US President George W Bush has repeatedly protested against recognition of the 'Armenian genocide'. The US Secretary General and eight former Secretaries of State also opposed adoption of this resolution.
Turkey, who does not recognize the accusations of the Armenians, has repeatedly warned that if resolution No 106 is adopted, US-Turkish relations may worsen. Last week the Prime Minister of Turkey, Rajab Teyyub Erdogan, condemned Obama and accused him of 'political inexperience'.
"Everybody well understands that adopting the Armenian draft law will bring significant harm to relations between Turkey and the United States," the Prime Minister of Turkey said.
Ankara suggested Armenia attend a mixed commission which would give free access to the archives of the 1915 events, but Armenia refused.
Turkish journalist-commentator and commentator of the Turkish Daily News, Jem Oguz, considers that the candidates for Presidency in the USA have repeatedly made such statements. "There are big differences between the candidates for presidency and president," he said.
According to Oguz, the president takes on a responsibility and if it is possible to give up the responsibility, the genocide will be recognized.
Oguz considers that if resolution No 106 is passed, the USA will lose its partner in Turkey. "Differences will materialize between the USA and Turkey and results of the confrontation will be in favor of Turkey," he said.
