( Anatoliantimes ) - "We do not believe that an Armenian bill submitted to the Congress would help solving problems between Turkey and Armenia," US Consul to the southern city of Adana Eric Green said Monday.
Green noted that the they understood Turkish concerns that the bill might damage relations between Turkey and the US.
"We prefer historians would tackle with these issues because relations might be hurt when politicians and diplomats get involved in such discussions. We want to focus on preserving and continuing cooperation with Turkey," Green told reporters on the sidelines of a meeting at a local journalists' association in Adana.
Green also said that the US government has been exerting every effort in its capacity to avert the Congressional approval of the bill, but added that problems between Turkey and Armenia should "somehow be solved."
"We would like Turkey to assume a critical approach to its own past," he stated.
