Turkey Friday decried a United States Senate committee resolution branding the massacre of Armenians by Ottoman forces during World War One as genocide, warning Congress against taking steps that would harm Turkish-American ties.Turkey accepts that many Armenians died in partisan fighting beginning in 1915, but denies that up to 1.5 million were killed and that this constituted an act of genocide, a term used by many Western historians and foreign parliaments.Armenia did not take up the Turkish offer because it regards the genocide as a historical fact and believes Turkey would use such a commission to press its own version of events.
