The U.S. Congress should not adopt a resolution recognizing the so-called "Armenian genocide", U.S. Ambassador to Turkey James Jeffrey said upon his arrival to the ministry.
U.S. House Committee on Foreign Affairs on Thursday adopted 23 votes to 22 a resolution recognizing the so-called "Armenian genocide".
Armenia claims that the Ottoman Empire committed genocide against Armenians living in Anatolia in 1915. Making greater efforts to promote the issue internationally, Armenians have achieved its recognition by parliaments of some countries.
