Tuesday is Turkeys national day, and the U.S. House of Representatives passed a resolution that day, defining the massacre of Armenians by Turkeys predecessor Ottoman Empire as genocide for the first time, causing strong dissatisfaction in Turkey.

According to the New York Times and other media, the U.S. House of Representatives passed relevant resolutions on the same day with 405 votes in favor and 11 against, condemning the killing of 1.5 million Armenians by the Ottoman Empire. Although the United States has recognized the genocide of Armenia by the Ottoman Empire in the form of presidential declaration or congressional committee resolution on several occasions, this is the first time the house of Representatives has passed a resolution. Whether the Senate will follow up is unclear. In addition, the U.S. House of representatives also passed a draft law on sanctions against Turkey on the same day, punishing Ankara for launching military operations in Syria and purchasing Russian made S-400 air defense missile systems.

Turkey is strongly dissatisfied with the US decision, AFP and other media reported. Ankara has warned that the latest period of time is a very fragile time point for international and regional security, a move by the United States that could damage relations between the two countries. Turkish Foreign Minister chawushiolu believes that Turkeys fountain of peace operation in Syria hinders the U.S. plan, and Washington attempts to retaliate with the resolution. Turkeys Foreign Ministry issued a statement Wednesday, saying the resolution was apparently prepared and published for the United States, without any historical or legal basis or legal binding force, and is a meaningless political means. Turkeys foreign ministry also summoned U.S. ambassador to Turkey sattfield on the 30th to protest against Washington.

According to foreign media reports, Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan said the resolution of the US House of Representatives was politically motivated and hinted that the Turkish parliament would pass an anti resolution.

Erdogan didnt specify what that would include, but in a previous speech, he talked about the abuse of Native Americans in the United States.

A country with a history of genocide and slavery has no right to speak or preach to Turkey, Erdogan said on October 30.

Erdogan later told reporters that he was scheduled to visit the United States on November 13, and now he said that no decision has been made on this. I havent made a decision yet, its a question mark, he said.
