PM: Relations between Turkey, Germany can worsen

Relations between Berlin and Ankara can worsen, if the German Bundestag adopts a resolution recognizing the 1915 events as the “genocide of Armenians”, said Turkey’s Prime Minister Binali Yildirim.

Turkey hopes that Germany will show common sense with regard to the 1915 events, said Yildirim, the TRT Haber news channel reported June 1.

He added that there has never been genocide in the history of Turkey.

Earlier, it was reported that the German parliament plans to adopt a resolution recognizing the 1915 events as the “genocide of Armenians”.

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.
