IN OTTOMAN TURKEY"

SOFIA, MARCH 31, NOYAN TAPAN. The Bulgarian Parliament declined the
bill "On Recognition of the Armenian Genocide in the Ottoman Turkey",
the Public Television of Armenia informs. "The Armenian cause" will be
hardly included in the agenda of the Bulgarian Parliament once more
as one of the influential parties of the Bulgarian parliament, the
Movement of Rights and Freedoms, has ethnic Turkish roots. Moreover,
this party makes part of the Bulgarian coalition government. According
to the Public Television of Armenia, the Bulgarian Parliament, to
all appearances, does not want to start a confrontation with the
Turkish government.
