Turkish FM slams US House’s move to recognize Armenian Genocide

STEPANAKERT, OCTOBER 30,  ARTSAKHPRESS: The House voted 405 to 11 in favor of a resolution recognizing the mass killings of Armenians a century ago as a genocide.

In a tweet, Cavusoglu said Turkey had thwarted a “big game” with its offensive into northeastern Syria and that the move by the House was aimed at taking revenge for the operation, Reuters reported.

“Those whose projects were frustrated turn to antiquated resolutions. Circles believing that they will take revenge this way are mistaken. This shameful decision of those exploiting history in politics is null&void for our Government and people,” Cavusoglu said on Twitter.
