    A joint letter written to the Speaker of the US House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi, from former US Secretaries of State Henry Kissinger, Alexander Haig, George Shultz, James Baker, Lawrence Eagleburger, Warren Christopher, Madeleine Albright, and Colin Powell has elicited a strong reaction from Armenian Foreign Minister Vartan Oskanian.

    The letter, in which the team of former Secretaries of State warn Pelosi against the passage of the proposed Armenian Genocide bill in the US House of Representatives, warns of "damage that would be done to the efforts to compromise" between Turkey and Armenia. Oskanian, reacting to news of the letter, asserted that Armenia and Turkey were a long way off from normalization of relations, saying "Despite Armenia's efforts to form normal relations with all of its neighbors, Turkey has taken no steps from its side to normalize relations."
     
    Oskanian's statement also noted that, due to the lack of normal relations between Armenia and Turkey, the passage of the "Armenian Genocide" bill by the US House of Representatives would not "damage" any relations.
