Germany recognizes Armenian Genocide

Germany recognizes Armenian Genocide

German Bundestag has adopted resolution on Armenian Genocide by vast majority of voices. Only one parliamentarian voted against and another abstained from voting. The resolution recognizes not only the fact of Armenian Genocide in Ottoman Empire in the beginning of the 20th century but also Germany's responsibility for these events. 

To note, Armenia and Turkey's ambassadors were present at the hearings in Bundestag. However Chancellor Angela Merkel, Vice-Chancellor Sigmar Gabriel and Foreign Minister Frank- Walter Steinmeier have not been present at hearings. Deputy Government Spokesperson Christiane Wirtz stated that Merkel supports the resolution. 

Turkey in its turn has warned Berlin on the level of first ranking officials about the possible negative consequences of the Turkish-German relations in case of adoption of this resolution.
