Turkish official expects Israeli attempt on Armenia claims to fail

Turkish Foreign Ministry said the Israeli Parliament Knesset's decision to accept a proposal to discuss the Armenian allegations regarding the incidents of 1915, was an attempt expected to fail like previous ones.

Foreign Ministry Spokesman Burak Ozugurgun, commented at a weekly press conference on Knesset's decision to accept the leader of Meretz Party Haim Oron's proposal to debate the Armenian allegations regarding the 1915 incidents as genocide.

Ozugurgun who pointed out that similar proposals were discussed at Knesset in the past said, "We expect such attempts to fail like the examples in the past."

"Not just the Israeli Parliament. But Turkey's views on judgement of history by parliamentarians, in general, is well known. It is better to leave interpretation of history to historians," said Ozugurgun.

Ozugurgun who said that Foreign Ministry Undersecretary Feridun Sinirlioglu would shortly travel to Israel for regular consultations, adding that the Middle East peace process as well as the course of Turkish-Israeli relations would be discussed.
