Turkey Recalls its Ambassador to United States After House Foreign Affairs Committee Vote

The Foreign Affairs Committee of the U.S. House of Representatives voted 23-22 to condemn as genocide the mass killings of Armenians 95 years ago.  Click here to read more from the New York Times about the vote and the resolution.  It is not known whether the resolution will now be sent to the full House of Representatives for a vote.  A similar resolution passed in 2007 did not make it to the floor of the House.  The BBC is reporting this morning that Turkey has recalled its Ambassador to the United States.
