"The Argentine Senate has approved a new text supporting the baseless Armenian allegations...(which) we strongly condemn and fully reject," the foreign ministry said, without giving details about the document.

"Following the adoption of this resolution, the visit of State Minister Mehmet Aydin... was canceled," the statement said.

Aydin has been scheduled to travel to Buenos Aires Apr. 28-29 for a gathering of the U.N.-sponsored Alliance of Civilizations initiative, which aims to foster dialogue between Islamic and Western societies and is co-chaired by Spain and Turkey.
