Statement By His Excellency Namik Tan, The Republic Of Turkey’s Ambassador To The United States In Response To Today’s Action In A U.s. House Of Representatives Committee On Foreign Affairs Mark-up, July 20, 2011
We are nevertheless encouraged that the final mark-up does not include a preamble, originally part of another legislation initiative by perennial critics of Turkey, that falsely accuses the Ottoman Empire of oppressing and intentionally destroying much of its ancient Christian populations.
Turkey continues to respect freedom of religion and freedom of worship.
We will continue to work with Members of Congress to ensure that Turkey’s multi-dimensional and decades-long alliance with the United States endures as a ‘model partnership’.”
