Turkey’s President Erdogan warned Germany that its plans to recognise the Armenian Genocide would damage bilateral ties. This comes despite German Chancellor Angela Merkel being an advent supporter of Turkey’s accession into the European Union.

Erdogan claimed that Germany was being deceived without mentioning who by.

“If Germany is to be deceived by this, then bilateral diplomatic, economic, trade, political, and military ties – we are both NATO countries – will be damaged,” he said.

The Greens Party have pushed for the resolution to occur and it is expected that it will be passed on Thursday.

Ottoman forces began in 1915 to slaughter 1.5 million Armenians, a million Greeks and 700,000 Assyrians.

The vote was to take place last year on the 100th anniversary verses of the beginning of the genocide but Merkel’s parliamentary allies, wanting to avoid tensions with Turkey, kept pushing it back.

I assure you that armenian genocide isn’t “genocide”. Actually don’t believe in whatever they say. Armenian people should think about Khojaly Massacre. On 26 February night of 1992 armenians with the help of the 366th shooting military regiment of former USSR attacked defenseless and helpless Khojaly. As a result of Armenian invasion, 613 residents of Khojaly were killed, 478 heavily injured. 1275 peace civilians, including elderly persons, children and women, were taken hostages and suffered heavy insults and offences from the Armenians. The fate of 150 of these persons is still remaining unknown. We demand justice for Khojaly. #Stoparmenianagression #StopArmenianTerrorism… Read more »

More than 60.000 people of Lachin are temporary settled in 58 cities and regions of Azerbaijan as internally displaced people. We demand justice for Karabakh. There’s no war in Karabakh. We just want to get our lands back. Azerbaijan calls Armenia to respect international law. #Stoparmenianagression #StopArmenianTerrorism #KhrabaghNow #KharabaghAzerbaijan #ArmenianTerrorism

1) I advice you to make your own research before believing what everyone says. A research made by U.S. White House showed that Armenians massacred 2 millions Muslim Ottoman people. Armenians do not welcome the idea of opening archives and discussing the events because they are afraid of this truth to come to agenda. Stand up against Armenian lies. #Stoparmenianagression #StopArmenianTerrorism #KhrabaghNow #KharabaghAzerbaijan #ArmenianTerrorism 2) I assure you that armenian genocide isn’t “genocide”.
