Turkish PM: Bundestag resolution on 1915 events – big mistake
Baku, Azerbaijan, June 2
By Rufiz Hafizoglu - Trend:
The adoption of the resolution by Germany's Bundestag (parliament) on recognizing the 1915 events as "Armenian genocide" is a big mistake, the 'YeniSafak' newspaper quoted Turkey's Prime Minister Binali Yildirim as saying June 2.
He pointed out that this resolution is unacceptable for Turkey.
Turkey is neither ashamed nor fears its history, added Yildirim.
Germany's Bundestag adopted a resolution on recognizing the so-called Armenian genocide June 2. Previously, Turkey's Prime Minister Binali Yildirim said that there has never been genocide in Turkey's history.
Recep Tayyip Erdogan also previously said that the events of 1915 were a difficult time not only for Armenians, but also for Arabs, Kurds and representatives of other nations living in the country.
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.
