ISTANBUL Oct 12 Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip
Erdogan said on Friday relations between Turkey and the United
States were in danger over a resolution branding as genocide
massacres of Armenians by Ottoman Turks.
Referring to relations with the United States and the
Armenian resolution, Erdogan, using a Turkish idiom usually
employed to describe relations, said: "Where the rope is worn
thin, may it break off." He did not elaborate.
The crowd of supporters broke into applause.
The U.S. House of Representatives Foreign Affairs Committee
approved on Wednesday a resolution branding the killings in 1915
genocide -- a charge Turkey hotly denies. Ankara responded by
calling its ambassador back for consultations.
