ArmInfo.Turkey's first reaction to the adoption by the US Congress of a resolution on the Armenian Genocide was milder than expected. However, we should wait for the  results of the behind-the-scenes negotiations between the Turkish and  American sides. Director of the Institute of Oriental Studies of the  National Academy of Sciences of Armenia, Ruben Safrastyan, stated  this at a meeting with reporters on October 31, recalling the planned  visit of Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan to the United States,  scheduled for November 13.

, Safrastyan said.

According to the forecasts of the Orientalist, the United States and  Turkey will be able to achieve some mutual agreement, and Turkey will  not tighten its rhetoric.

At the same time, Safrastyan did not rule out that recent events  could lead to increased pressure on the Armenian community of Turkey.

"In fact, the Armenians of Constantinople are hostages," the director  of the Institute of Oriental Studies said, recalling that tens of  thousands of people in Turkey are being persecuted for their  political views.
