The number of US Senators supporting the resolution on the Armenian Genocide reached 9, Armenian political scientist Suren Sargsyan said on Facebook.
“The number of supporters of our resolution in the US Senate, the upper house of the Congress, has become 9. Today 2 more Republican Senators Mitt Romney and John Cornyn joined them”, Sargsyan said.
On October 29 the US House of Representatives adopted a resolution on recognizing the Armenian Genocide based on the voting results. 405 Congressmen voted in favor of the resolution, while 11 voted against. A similar resolution is most likely to be debated at the Senate in November.
