US PRESIDENT THREATENS TO RECOGNIZE ARMENIAN GENOCIDE 03/01/2003
US PRESIDENT THREATENS TO RECOGNIZE ARMENIAN GENOCIDE
 
The Turkish Jumhurriyet daily says that during a meeting at White House between Turkish foreign and economy ministers and US president George Bush the latter said. “You have nothing to do in Washington, go back home and push through your parliament a decision on your country’s support to us in our plans to strike on Iraq.”
The daily claims that Bush’s administration cited three levers to press on Turkey.
1. If you refuse to meet our demands we shall closely cooperate with Kurds in northern Iraq, who want an independent state and which would re-ignite separatist moods in Turkey’s south east with predominant Kurdish population.
2. If you refuse to cooperate with us the International Monetary Fund and World Bank would turn their back on you
3. As you know many US presidents acknowledged the Armenian genocide, but not Congress, for the time being. The Armenian lobby in the USA expects an occasion to push a resolution through it.
