YEREVAN, DECEMBER 17. ARMINFO. Turkey is in strong opposition to the Resolution recognizing the Armenian Genocide adopted by the National Council of Switzerland on December 15, 2003.

The Turkish “Milliyet” newspaper reports that official Ankara condemns Switzerland for the Resolution. It regards as not corresponding to the facts the Resolution’s statement that the UN adopted the definition of Genocide. In its turn, the Turkish “Hurriyet” newspaper reports that the adoption of the Resolution by the Swiss Parliament is the result of Turkish special services’ activities in that country. The newspaper writes that the Turkish intelligence service received information on a meeting between the Swiss Foreign Minister and one of the PKK representatives. The information was reported to Ankara, which canceled the visit of the Swiss Foreign Minister to Turkey. After that the bilateral relations began to “cool down”, which resulted in the adoption of the REsolution by the lower changer of the Swiss Parliament. to substantiate its point of view, the newspaper remind the readers that last year the Swiss Parliament would not discuss the resolution, leaving it “to historians’ verdict.” “The draft resolution was put on the Parliament’s agenda as counteraction against the Turkish national securities bodies,” the newspaper writes.

On December 15, by 107 to 67 with 11 abstentions, the National Council of Switzerland adopted the Resolution recognizing the Armenian Genocide. In the Resolution the National Council recognizes the Armenian Genocide of 1915 and requests the General Council, the Government, to inform of the decision through diplomatic channels.
