Turkey's foreign minister warned the US Congress that passing a resolution condemning as genocide the early 20th century killings of up to 1.5 million Armenians would harm relations with his country. "Adoption of even a nonbinding resolution in either chamber would seriously harm our bilateral relations," Abdullah Gul said Monday as he wrapped up a trip to Washington. Gul, speaking after meeting with top US officials, described the possible resolution as an irritant to otherwise close cooperation with the United States on vital issues including bringing political stability to Iraq, preventing nuclear proliferation and connecting Asian energy supplies with European markets. Even as the Bush administration says it will work with members of Congress to head off the genocide resolution, Gul warned that the US government should not get involved in the sensitive dispute.
