Baku, Azerbaijan, June 2
By Rufiz Hafizoglu - Trend:
The resolution of the German parliament (Bundestag) recognizing the 1915 events as the "Armenian genocide" will negatively affect Germany's relations with Turkey, said Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.
Erdogan said that first of all, it was decided to recall Turkey's ambassador from Germany for political consultations, TRT Haber news channel reported June 2.
Turkey will take the next step after a thorough acquaintance with the text of the resolution adopted by Bundestag, added Erdogan.
The German parliament adopted June 2 a resolution recognizing the 1915 events as the "Armenian genocide".
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.
