Turkish Foreign Minister Abdullah Gul is paying an official visit to the US.

Gul will meet with Vice President Dick Cheney, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, Assistant to the President for National Security Affairs Stephen Hadley and a number of leading members of the Congress as well.

He will explain to the US officials the damage of the adoption of the bill on alleged Armenian genocide to the relations between the two countries.

Chairmanship of Nancy Pelosi, who is close to Armenian lobby, to the House of Representatives increases the possibility of discussion and adoption of the bill.

Therefore, three Jewish organizations will try to prevent including the bill on the agenda of the House of Representatives.

hey try to use Rahm Emanuel, the main author of election strategy paving the way of victory for democrats in order to influence Pelosi's position, who is not so close to Jews.

The leader of one of the Jewish organizations told the Turkish journalists that Emanuel should be persuaded of the importance of preventing the bill. Nancy always follows Emanuel's advice.

Turhan Chomaz and Orhan Ziya Diren representing the Turkish government (Justice and Development) and opposition parties will also visit the US tomorrow.

They are expected to meet with congressmen and members of Armenian Diaspora. Yashar Buyukanit Chief of the Turkish General Staff of the Turkish Armed Forces will begin his official visit to Washington on February 11.
