American Turks and Azeris say no to US intervention in Turkey’s religious affairs

18 June 2011 [19:31] - TODAY.AZ
American Turks and Azerbaijanis have started a new campaign to protect Turkey’s rights, Azerbaijani Diaspora reported.

The US Senate Resolution introduced on May 24 for the U.S. Congress to demand Turkey to grant special international privileges to the Ecumenical Patriarchate of Istanbul, bypassing the Constitution and secular laws of that country.

The resolution contradicts the founding principles and the Constitution of the US by seeking the federal government institution to interfere in sovereign religious affairs of a foreign country.

Turkish, Azeri and Turkic-Americans oppose H. Res. 196 by sending the Pax Turcica Capwiz action letter to their elected representatives and local media.

US Turks and Azeris call on all friends and supporters to join the campaign.
