Azerbaijani, Turkish, Jewish diaspora to prevent recognition of "Armenian genocide" in U.S.
Azerbaijan, Baku, Feb. 14 / Trend , J.Babayeva/
Azerbaijani, Turkish and Jewish diaspora will jointly prevent Armenian lobby's activity on recognition of alleged "genocide" in U.S.
"The Azerbaijani diaspora is not inactive before the Armenian lobby in U.S. We assemble with the Turkish and Jewish diaspora and specify activity directions every day. We will meet with congressmen in Washington next week," U.S.-Azerbaijan Society Chairman Tomris Azeri told Trend in a telephone conversation from New York on Feb. 14.
The Armenian lobby strengthened its efforts on recognition of "genocide" after Barack Obama's coming to power in U.S. Armenia and Armenian lobby claim that modern Turkey's precursor the Ottoman Empire committed "genocide" against Armenians in 1915.
Early February, the U.S.-Armenian National Committee urged citizens of Armenian origin to send a letter to Barack Obama and congressmen and impose pressure on them accept "genocide", the Turkish Haber 7 News Agency reported.
Azeri said that the Jewish committees will support the Azerbaijani and Turkish diasporas to prevent Armenians' activity on recognition of alleged "Armenian genocide". "Jews know very well who our enemies are," he said.
If "Armenian genocide" is discussed at the U.S. Congress, it will not be accepted, Azeri said.
