Qa-38, 22 May 2019, Statement Of The Spokesperson Of The Ministry Of Foreign Affairs, Hami Aksoy, In Response To A Question Regarding 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

Republic Of Turkey Ministry Of Foreign Affairs 22.05.2019

We observe that the anti-Turkey circles in the United States have recently intensified their activities in the U.S. Congress. 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. 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.

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.
