Turkish Parliamentary Foreign Relations Committee head Murat Merjan called the approval of a resolution recognizing the so-called "Armenian Genocide" by the U.S. House of Representatives Foreign Affairs Committee "the greatest comedy," CNN Turk reported.
The U.S. House Foreign Affairs Committee adopted yesterday with 23 to 22 votes a resolution recognizing the so-called "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 in some countries.
Merjan called adopting the resolution "the greatest sitcom in recent years" at a press conference held at the Turkish Embassy in Washington.
