[size=18]The Turkish Foreign Ministry summoned on Wednesday the US ambassador in Ankara, David Michael Satterfield, because the US House of Representatives adopted a document stating that the US recognizes the "genocide" of Armenians in the Ottoman Empire.
The news agency "Anatolia" Turkish, that "the Turkish Foreign Ministry summons the US ambassador in Ankara against the backdrop of resolutions approved by the US House of Representatives."
It is noteworthy that the US House of Representatives adopted, on Wednesday, a document that provides for the US recognition of the "genocide" of Armenians in the Ottoman Empire.
"It is never too late to acknowledge the genocide, and it is perfectly appropriate today," said Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff, one of the authors of the document.
Turkey strongly refuses to describe what the Armenians suffered between 1915 and 1917 during the Ottoman era as "genocide", insisting that the victims of these events are not only Armenians but also Turks.
