Turkish, US FMs talk on phone

Turkey's Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu talked to U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on phone.

Burak Ozugergin, spokesman for Turkey's Ministry of Foreign Affairs, said Monday that approval of a resolution about 1915 incidents by the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Foreign Affairs on March 4 topped the agenda of the talk between the two foreign ministers.

"Davutoglu stressed that not politicians but historians should deal with historical issues. He added that resolution should not be brought onto agenda of the House of Representatives to remove negative impacts of peace efforts on southern Caucasus and Turkish-American relations. Clinton, on her part, said that the U.S. administration was against both the resolution and efforts to bring it onto agenda of the House of Representatives. Clinton also highlighted importance of Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan's attendance at the International Nuclear Security Summit in Washington D.C. on April 12 and 13," Ozugergin said.

Clinton informed Davutoglu on her recent visit to Russia and recent developments in the Minsk process as the co-president of the Minsk Group.

Davutoglu and Clinton exchanged views on the Middle East peace process, recent developments in Palestine, the election in Iraq and the other regional issues.
