The 29th Annual Conference on United States-Turkey Relations, which is organized by Turkish-American Business Council (TAIK) and American-Turkish Council (ATC) every year in April, was postponed.
Foreign Economic Relations Board of Turkey (DEIK) stated on Saturday that the conference, which was planned to be held in Washington between April 11 and 14, was postponed due to approval of an Armenian resolution at Foreign Relations Committee of U.S. Congress and the following developments.
TAIK and ATC made the postponement decision together, added DEIK.
The two councils expressed sorrow over the postponement of the conference to a further date, and stressed that they had full confidence in sound commercial and investment relations between Turkey and the U.S..
On March 4, the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Foreign Relations approved a resolution in support of the Armenian allegations regarding the incidents of 1915.
Upon such development, Turkey temporarily recalled its ambassador in Washington D.C. Namik Tan to Ankara.
