HR 252: Genocide resolution left off floor debate, but House reconvenes

The US House of Representatives did not include HR 252 – the Armenian Genocide resolution – on its agenda on Tuesday in what was thought might be its final day of session. However, the House has been called to reconvene again today (December 22 – approximately 7 p.m. Armenia time), extending the possibility that the controversial resolution might be heard again before the current House yields to a new (Republican) majority next month.

Meanwhile, supporters of the resolution – led most vocally in the States by the Armenian National Congress of America (ANCA) – are watching for any sign that might gauge White House temperament on the issue.
