By bne IntelliNews March 10, 2010
PM Recep Tayyip Erdogan says that Turkey s ambassador to Washington will not return to the US until the Armenian genocide bill issue becomes clearer and the US administration clarifies its stance on the matter. Recently, the Foreign Affairs Committee of the US House of Representatives adopted a resolution which labels the killings of Armenians during World War I as genocide. After the resolution was adopted, the government recalled its Washington ambassador for consultations. Following the governments strong reaction, US secretary of state, Hillary Clinton asserts that the Obama administration will work hard to block the resolution and seek to prevent it from going to the House of Representatives floor.
