A Turkish minister has canceled a trip to the US because of a resolution passed by a congressional committee labeling the World War I-era killing of Armenians as genocide, state-run media said Saturday. Kursad Tuzmen, who is in charge of foreign trade, was scheduled to attend an investment conference organized by the Turkish-US Business Council, news agency Anatolia reported. It said the minister canceled his trip in protest at the genocide resolution passed Wednesday by the House Foreign Affairs Committee. Armenian Prime Minister Serge Sarkisian is to arrive in Washington on Wednesday for talks with US officials, in a visit scheduled months ago, according to the Armenian embassy in Washington. He is expected to discuss economic cooperation and security issues.
