Ankara believes that U.S. President Barack Obama will respect Turkey's concerns over his speech to be delivered on April 24 and will not risk relations with Turkey.
Obama's his first overseas visit to Turkey after he took office was considered as the start of a new period in Turkish-U.S. relations
The visit created the impression in Ankara that the United States was willing to boost cooperation, consultation and solidarity with Turkey and implement strategic partnership in real sense.
Turkey-Armenia relations were high on the agenda during Obama's talks in Turkey.
Ankara reaffirmed that 1915 incidents should be left to historians, indicating that discussion of the matter in the U.S. Congress may have negative impact on Turkish-U.S. relations.
Ankara thinks that any step that would impede the process would not be taken and Obama would not like to lose Turkey.
