The House of Representatives' Foreign Affairs Committee has passed a resolution recognizing the 1915 massacre of Armenians as genocide. The move came hours after the U.S. leadership urged Congress not to recognize as genocide the killing of Armenians by T

The comments were made as the Committee was preparing to vote on the legislation.

According to Mr Bush, if passed the bill would harm U.S. relations with Turkey – its major NATO ally.

Ms Rice says the passing of the resolution would be “very problematic” for U.S. policy in the Middle East.
