Turkey may apply international law against Armenia bills

A Turkish Foreign Ministry spokesman on Wednesday said Turkey considered resorting to international law as an option in its efforts to head off foreign parliaments from affirming Armenian allegations on the incidents of 1915 in the Ottoman Empire.

"We are evaluating all options and appealing to international law is one of them," Burak Ozugergin told reporters at a weekly press briefing when responding to a question.

Swedish parliament approved earlier this month a resolution that confirmed Armenian allegations just a week after a U.S. House foreign affairs panel adopted a similar resolution.

Ozugergin said such resolutions "did harm" to Turkey's relations with countries which approved them as well as with Armenia.
