Turkey doesn’t recognize Germany’s resolution on “Armenian genocide" – minister
Baku, Azerbaijan, June 4
By Rufiz Hafizoglu - Trend:
Turkey doesn't recognize Germany's resolution regarding the so-called Armenian genocide, Minister for EU Affairs of Turkey Omar Celik said, Anadolu news agency reported.
The minister said that surely this decision will have an impact on the relations between Germany and Turkey.
Turkey won't be affected by this resolution, since the resolution is not of a legal nature, Celik said.
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.
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.
