The House Foreign Affairs Committee members Steve Cohen, Kay Granger
and Ed Whitfield sent a letter to their colleagues calling to reject
Genocide Resolution scheduled for a vote in the U.S. Congress on
March 4, 2010, congressional newspaper The Hill reports.

"A vote on this resolution will do nothing to rectify the tragedies
of the past, but it will most certainly have significant negative
consequences on current and future relations with Turkey," the
letter reads.

The lawmakers are drafting a letter addressed to the committee chairman
Howard Berman and the panel's ranking member Ileana Ros-Lehtinen,
the source reads.

According to the website, there are 16 co-sponsors in the 46-member
committee, while overall number of co-sponsors in the House is 137.
