The U.S. House of Representatives overwhelmingly voted to approve a resolution recognizing the mass killings of Armenians in Turkey from 1915 to 1923 as a genocide. The 405-11 vote declares that it is now U.S. policy to commemorate the killing of 1.5 million Armenians by the Ottoman Empire as genocide. The issue has long triggered tensions between Turkey and Armenia, which to this day do not have a diplomatic relationship.
