    Turkish Foreign Ministry Spokesman Namik Tan said on Wednesday that Turkey believed that German governmental party would not support the draft resolution prepared by the opposition on the so-called Armenian genocide.

    At a weekly press conference, Tan replied a question about the draft resolution which will be submitted to the German federal parliament in April, by CDU/CSU group. The title on the cover of the draft was ''commemoration of Armenians on the 90th anniversary of
    their relocation and massacre on April 24th, 1915 - Germany should contribute to provide peace between Turks and Armenians''.

    Recalling that this was an initiative of the German opposition, Tan said, ''we believe this will not be advocated by governmental party.''

    He said necessary initiatives were made both in Ankara and Berlin to prevent the draft resolution be adopted, and noted that decisions taken in the parliaments of third countries did not help overcoming problems between Turkey and Armenia.

    ''We believe that the issue will be assessed by both parties to prevent disruption of excellent Turkish-German relations'' Tan added.
