“German President Joachim Gauck’s statement on the 100th anniversary of the Armenian Genocide, along with this Bundestag resolution, is a valuable contribution not only to the process of international recognition and condemnation of the Armenian genocide but also to the fight for prevention of genocides and crimes against humanity,” Armenian Foreign Minister Edward Nalbandian said in a statement.

 

“Germany and Austria, two former allies of the Ottoman Empire acknowledge their share of responsibility in the perpetration of the Armenian Genocide, while the Turkish authorities keep denying the obvious fact of the genocide committed by the Ottoman Empire,” Minister Nalbandian said.

 

“The international community has been waiting for Turkey to face its history for 101 years,” the Foreign Minister said.
