State Department Opposes Turkey Sanctions, Genocide Resolution
The Trump administration opposes Turkey sanctions adopted by the House last week as well as a resolution condemning the Armenian genocide, arguing that the two initiatives risk further straining relations with a key NATO ally, a senior State Department official said.The administration is concerned that the sanctions -- passed 403-16 in the House last week in response to the Turkey’s military offensive in northern Syria -- will tie its hands and cut off options to resolve U.S. concerns about Turkey’s actions, said the official, who asked not to be identified discussing internal deliberations. The official wouldn’t say whether President Donald Trump intends to veto the bill.
