/PanARMENIAN.Net/ The Armenian Genocide Resolution (H. Res. 106)
may be put on a vote in the plenary session of the U.S. House of
Representatives in January 2008, Democrat Brad Sherman declared after
a meeting with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Turkish media reports.

"The bill will be brought to a vote, when we have the support of the
necessary number of Congressmen.

Possibly, the voting will take place in January 2008," Sherman said.

Speaker Pelosi had recently reconsidered her decision to put the
bill on a vote before November 22 due to pressure from the Bush
administration.

The resolution introduced by Rep. Adam Schiff is supported by 219
Congressmen.
