YEREVAN, June 2. /TASS/. Armenia welcomes the decision of Germany’s Bundestag on Thursday to pass a resolution on recognizing the Ottoman era genocide against Armenians and other Christian minorities, Armenia’s Foreign Minister Eduard Nalbandyan said.
Earlier in the day, the German parliament unanimously adopted the document titled "In remembrance and commemoration of the genocide of the Armenians and other Christian minorities in the Ottoman Empire 101 years ago." Only one MP voted against the document, while another one abstained.
The genocide issue has been marring Armenia’s relations with Turkey for decades. Ankara is still refusing to recognize the massacre of an estimated 1.5 million Armenians between 1915 and 1918 as genocide. Ankara claims that mass murders of Armenians resulted from the civil war, not from targeted policy of extermination.
