U.S. CONGRESS COMMITTEE ON INTвЂ™L RELATIONS BACKS BILLS ON RECOGNITION OF вЂ�ARMENIAN GENOCIDEвЂ™
The Committee on International Relations of the U.S. Congress supported two bills on the Recognition of Armenian genocide and Reflection on an Armenian genocide in the U.S. foreign policyвЂ™ and sent it to for the approval of the general assembly of the Congress, the Turkish media reports.
The efforts by the U.S. Department on preventing the resolution were ineffective.
The first drat law on the recognition of the Armenian genocide was backed by 35 Congressmen, while 11 people were against it.
The second draft law on вЂ�Reflection on an Armenian genocide in the U.S. foreign policyвЂ™ was adopted with 40 pros and 7 cons.
Unless the head of the US Chamber of Representatives Dennis Hastert his right of veto, both questions can be sent to the Congress.
