House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi said it was uncertain whether members will vote on Armenian genocide after several members pulled their support of from proposed resolution because of fears it would cripple US relations with Turkey. "Whether it will come up or not, or what the action will be, remains to be seen," Democrat Pelosi, who controls the House's agenda, told reporters Wednesday. The remark marks a weakening of Pelosi's previous position. Both she and the House majority leader, her second-in-command in the chamber, earlier pledged that if the resolution should clear the Foreign Affairs Committee, the full House would vote on it by year's end.
