Baku, Azerbaijan, June 2
By Rufiz Hafizoglu - Trend:
Turkey has recalled its ambassador from Germany after the adoption by the German parliament (Bundestag) of a resolution recognizing the 1915 events as the "Armenian genocide", the Turkish newspaper Aksam reported June 2.
Commenting on the resolution, Turkish Deputy Prime Minister Numan Kurtulmus said Turkey does not accept this decision of the German parliament.
Kurtulmus noted that Turkey will respond adequately to Germany for the Bundestag's resolution.
Earlier, Turkey's Prime Minister Binali Yildirim said the relations between Berlin and Ankara can worsen if the German Bundestag adopts a resolution recognizing the 1915 events as the "Armenian genocide".
He added that there has never been genocide in the history of Turkey.
Armenia and the Armenian lobby claim that Turkey's predecessor, the Ottoman Empire, committed the so-called genocide against Armenians living in Anatolia in 1915.
While strengthening the propaganda of "genocide" in the world, Armenians achieved its recognition by parliaments of some countries.
