PARIS - France is set to vote by the end of January on a bill that would make it illegal to deny the 1915 mass killing of Armenians by Ottomon Turks amounted to genocide, parliamentary and government sources said on Wednesday.

Lawmakers in France's National Assembly -- the lower house of parliament -- voted overwhelmingly in favor of a draft law outlawing genocide denial in December, leading Ankara to cancel all economic, political and military meetings with Paris and recalling its ambassador for consultations.

Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan has described the bill as "politics based on racism, discrimination and xenophobia" and turned his anger on French President Nicolas Sarkozy, accusing France of colonial massacres in Algeria.
