Azerbaijan, Baku, March 4 / Trend A.Huseynbala /
"The activities of the Turkish delegation that is on a visit to the United States will be effective," Nizami Jafarov, Azerbaijani Parliamentary Culture Committee chairman and head of the Azerbaijan-Turkey Inter-Parliamentary Working Group, told Trend .
"The U.S, Congress will not accept the resolution on the so-called Armenian genocide," he said.
U.S. Congress International Relations Commission Chairman Howard Berman proposed to submit the issue for consideration March 4.
Armenia claims that the Ottoman Empire committed genocide against Armenians living in Anatolia in 1915. Making greater efforts to promote the issue internationally, Armenians have achieved its recognition by parliaments of some countries.
Azerbaijan also took steps to prevent the adoption of the resolution by the U.S. Congress.
"Given all this, I can say that the resolution is unlikely to be adopted by the U.S. Congress. However, even if the document is adopted, it is not so radical," he added.
Turkey and Azerbaijan can influence the U.S. Congress.
"Despite the fact that these opportunities are currently quite limited, they are gradually increasing. So I do not believe that the resolution on the Armenian genocide can be easily adopted in the U.S. Congress," he said.
