Azerbaijan, Baku, April 29 / Trend, M. Aliyev /

The Israeli Parliament will not submitted the fictional "Armenian genocide" issue for discussions, Turkish ambassador to Azerbaijan Hulusi Kilic told journalists today.

"Our position is that the parliamentarians should give an opportunity to historians to study this issue. I think that Israeli Parliament will not take a false step," Kilic said.

According to him, Turkey has many friends in Israel.

The meeting of the Left parties faction represented in the Knesset adopted a decision on submitting the fictional " Armenian genocide" for discussions.

Twenty MPs participated in the voting, 12 of whom voted for the decision and eight - against. The decision has been represented to the Israeli Parliamentary Committee on Foreign Relations and Defence.

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 in some countries.
