No: 160, 11 June 2019, Press Release Regarding The Resolution “expressing Concern For The United States-turkey Alliance” Approved At The United States House Of Representatives

Republic Of Turkey Ministry Of Foreign Affairs 11.06.2019

As previously stated, the Resolution titled "Expressing Concern for the United States-Turkey Alliance", which was approved at the United States House of Representatives, on 10 June, is not consistent in anyway with the deep rooted friendship and alliance between Turkey and the US. It is impossible to accept the unfair and unfounded allegations raised in the Resolution about Turkey's foreign policy and judicial system.

As we have always emphasized, the most effective way of eliminating disagreements between friendly and allied countries is dialogue and respect for the sovereign decisions of the countries. Instead, approving such resolutions which are not binding and which do not serve to enhance mutual trust; using the language of threat and sanctions and putting some artificial deadlines are not acceptable.
