Congressman Adam Schiff, D-Pasadena, denounced the idea of a historical
commission on Armenian deaths during World War I and after, between
1915-1923.

The commission is part of proposed talks between Turkey and Armenia.

Schiff is a cosponsor of a bill to officially label those deaths as
a genocide against Armenians perpetuated by the Turkish state.

Schiff said in a statement that the idea of a commission is "thoroughly
discredited," and that there is no dispute amongst scholars that
there was a genocide.

He said he does favor the two states holding talks.
