Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan does not believe that the U.S. Congress will make an emotional decision on "genocide", Cihan news agency reported.
According to Erdogan, the U.S. is well aware of Turkey's significance. "I don't think the U.S. will bow to a couple of people who don't realize Turkey's significance," Erdogan said.Armenia and Armenian lobby claim that Turkey's predecessor - the Ottoman Empire - committed genocide against Armenians living in Anatolia in 1915. Armenians want the genocide to be recognized worldwide. They intensified propaganda of the so-called "genocide" around the world and achieved recognition at several countries' parliaments. Armenian lobby is expected to intensify activities at parliaments, especially at the U.S. Congress, due to anniversary of the "genocide" in April.
