The signing of an accord to restore diplomatic ties between Turkey and Armenia was delayed at the last minute Saturday due to concerns over the wording of the final statement the parties will make. US Secretary of State Hilary Rodham Clinton abruptly returned to her hotel just before she was to attend the signing ceremony. "We're facilitating the two sides on coming to an agreement on the statements they are going to make at the ceremony," said State Department spokesman Ian Kelley.
