    While heavy diplomatic traffic between Ankara and Washington, DC continues on the matter of the Armenian bill accepted last week by the House of Representatives' Foreign Affairs committee, signals from the US capital indicate that support may be waning for passage of the controversial resolution.

    Though House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has signalled her strong support for the bill, which backs Armenian allegations of genocide at the hands of the Ottoman Empire, she has for the first time this week noted that the passage of the bill is "not certain." 12 congresspeople from the US House of Representatives have recently pulled their support away from the resolution, while President George W. Bush has telephoned Pelosi to urge her not to bring the resolution up for voting on the floor of the House.
