RA President welcomed endeavors aimed at U.S. Congress recognition of Armenian Genocide

/PanARMENIAN.Net/ Armenian President Robert Kocharian commended endeavors aimed at recognition of the Armenian Genocide by U.S. Congress. Recognition of historical truth cannot be harmful for U.S.-Turkey bilateral relations, said President Kocharian, currently in Brussels. He noted that despite the tension that emerged after France’s recognition of the Armenian Genocide, the Turkish-French commodity turnover increased 1.5 times during a year.The RA President also reminded that in the course of 15 years already, Yerevan has kept on offering Turkey to open dialogue without preconditions. October 10, brushing aside White House warnings, the U.S. House Committee on Foreign Affairs approved the Armenian Genocide resolution with 27 to 21 votes. The Committee decision opens the way for full house consideration of the measure
