US Senate to Vote on 'Armenian Genocide' Draft


The Armenian lobby in the US have presented the US Senate with a draft
decision backing their version of events in the Turkish-Armenian
clashes in 1915.

The draft presented by Senate Foreign Affairs Committee chief Robert
Menendez and Republican Senator Mark Kirk aims to label the death of
Armenians during the war as a 'genocide'.

Democrat Senetors Barbara Boxer and Ed Markey are among those to pen
their names to the draft, which must now be voted on by the Senate.

Then, with the approval of the Democrat majority leader Harry Reid,
the draft may be brought to the attention of the Senate's General
Assembly.

However, even if the draft is accepted, it will not be binding.
