The Obama administration "strongly opposes" the approval of a resolution branding the World War I-era killing of Armenians genocide, US Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton told reporters in Guatemala on Friday.

While she did not answer a question posed to her about the possible diplomatic fallout with Turkey over the matter, Clinton said her government would "work very hard to make sure it does not go to the House floor."

US President Barack Obama's administration had been silent about the resolution until shortly before the vote at the House of Representatives, when it said it opposed its passage. Turkey wants stronger action to block the resolution.
