Turkey on Wednesday rejected the US House of Representatives' official recognition of the "Armenian Genocide", warning it risks harming ties "at an extremely fragile time" for international and regional security.

"As a meaningless political step, its sole addressees are the Armenian lobby and anti Turkey groups," the foreign ministry said in a statement. 

"We believe that American friends of Turkey who support the continuation of the alliance and friendly relations will question this grave mistake and those who are responsible will be judged by the conscience of the American people," it added.
