The minister said that surely this decision will have an impact on the relations between Germany and Turkey.


Turkey won’t be affected by this resolution, since the resolution is not of a legal nature, Celik said.


Germany’s Bundestag adopted a resolution on recognizing the Armenian genocide June 2. Previously, Turkey’s Prime Minister Binali Yildirim said that there has never been genocide in Turkey’s history.


Armenia and the Armenian lobby claim that Turkey’s predecessor, the Ottoman Empire, committed the genocide against Armenians living in Anatolia in 1915.
