Hayk Demoyan: H.Res.252 may be adopted once it appears within scope of U.S. political interests

PanARMENIAN.Net - The director of Armenian Genocide Museum Institute, Hayk Demoyan, commented on the situation with the recent failure of U.S House Democratic Leadership to schedule a vote on the Armenian Genocide resolution, H. Res.252.

“I don’t rely on the U.S. Congress in recognition of the Genocide. Nor do I think the resolution will be taken off the agenda, being one of the leverages of pressure on Turkey. However, the H.Res.252 might be adopted once it appears within the scope of the political interests of the United States,” the historian told a news conference in Yerevan.

The U.S. House Democratic Leadership failed to schedule a vote on H. Res.252, despite support for this human rights measure from a broad bipartisan majority, killing the prospects for the passage of this legislation during this session of Congress.
