( Cihan ) - US Deputy Secretary of State Nick Burns said that the US administration would do its best to block the passage of Armenian resolution in the US House of Representatives.
Headed by Turkey-US Parliamentary Friendship Group chairman Egemen Bagis, a delegation from Turkish Parliament met Burns, the undersecretary of state for political affairs. The meeting in the US capital Washington lasted one and a half hours.
Burns assured the Turkish officials that the US government would try to prevent the passage of the controversial bill in the House.
The second Turkish delegation, which is in Washington to lobby the US congressmen against the Armenian claims, also came together with the representatives of Jewish community in the US and attended Turkey-US Council meeting.
Turkish MPs will also meet US congressmen today and tomorrow to convey Turkey's thesis on the so called genocide and stress that Turkish archives are open for historians and researchers to examine the events.
Late in February, the first of the three delegations from Turkish parliament to lobby American congressmen prior to the voting of a resolution on so-called Armenian genocide in the US House of Representatives held talks with US officials.
In addition to this delegation, a third will also leave for the US during the last week of March to press the congressmen.
