Turkish Foreign Ministry reacts the US
The Foreign Ministry reacted to the draft resolution adopted by the US House of Representatives Foreign Relations Committee entitled "expressing concerns for the United States-Turkey alliance".
Foreign Ministry Spokesman Hami Aksoy responded in writing to a question about the draft resolution adopted in the Foreign Relations Committee of the US House of Representatives entitled "expressing concerns for the United States-Turkey alliance".
Stating that they observe that the anti-Turkey circles in the United States have recently intensified their activities in the U.S. Congress, Aksoy said the Draft Resolution, titled "Expressing Concern for the United States-Turkey Alliance" which was approved on 22 May at the Foreign Affairs Committee of the House of Representatives, is another example of this.
"Turkey and the U.S. have deep-rooted allied relations, based on common values and mutual interests," said Aksoy while noted that they work together to contribute to the peace and security in various regions in the world.
"Resolutions as such, that undermine this fact and the rightful reasons behind the steps taken by Turkey for its national security, are inconsistent with the allied relationship between our countries," Aksoy added.
"In this respect, there is no need for concern by the American people and their representatives, whose friendship we value. In fact, friendship and alliance require to demonstrate a constructive and sincere effort by supporting the working group we proposed."
