The deputies of the German Parliament approved a resolution in which official Berlin recognizes the fact of Armenian genocide in Ottoman Empire in 1915. The Bundestag did not listen to Ankara, which Germany was being blackmailed by the breakdown of communication and the huge Turkish Diaspora in Germany.
In support of the document voted almost all the deputies of the Bundestag. Against the resolution made by only one member of Parliament, one abstained.
It is not excluded that after the vote, Ankara will withdraw its Ambassador from Berlin — as it has done in other countries, the authorities which recognized the fact of premeditated extermination of the Armenian population of the Ottoman Empire.
As a result of mass extermination in the Ottoman Empire were destroyed and a half million Armenians. Many countries, including Russia, recognized the Armenian genocide. And in Switzerland and France for denying the Armenian genocide is a criminal offense.Related posts:
