Turkey: German Bundestag’s resolution on 1915 events – shameful decision
Baku, Azerbaijan, June 2
By Rufiz Hafizoglu - Trend:
The resolution adopted by Germany's Bundestag (parliament) on recognizing the 1915 events as "Armenian genocide" is a shameful decision, read a statement issued by Turkey's Foreign Ministry June 2.
This anti-Turkish resolution is also groundless, said the statement.
"If Germany intends to learn the truth about the 1915 events, it should call for creating a joint commission to study those events," added Turkey's Foreign Ministry.
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.
