"The U.S has always recognized the 1915 events as a terrible tragedy, but has not taken a position on the question of whether it should be called a "genocide."
As you know, the U.S president has the primary responsibility for implementing U.S. foreign policy while the Congress authorizes the budget, approves ambassadors and treaties, etc. It is conceivable that the House of Representatives may pass a resolution recognizing the so-called Armenian "genocide," but such a resolution is unlikely to lead to a change in the U.S. administraion’s policy on this issue, nor should it have an impact on our relations with countries in this region."
It should be mentioned that, the members of Armenian Support Group in the U.S Congress Adam Schiff, Franck Pallone, George Radanovich and Joe Knollenberg worked out draft law on recognition of 1915 events as Armenian genocide. The draft will be put in discussions by the signature of 150 congressmen. The preliminary hearings of the draft will be held this week in the House of Representatives. Armenian lobby persist in approving the draft law until April 24. /APA/
