BERLIN – Erika Steinbach, a member of German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s Christian Democratic Union Party urges Turkey to apologize for the Armenian Genocide. The call came ahead of Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s visit to Germany, Bild reports.

“I urge Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan to stop denying the genocide of Armenians and Assyrians by the Young Turk government of the Ottoman Empire 99 years ago,” Steinbach said. She added it’s time to apologize to the descendants of the victims of the first genocide of the 20th century.

“It is Erdogan’s duty to face the truth nearly 100 years after that terrible crime and ensure that the Turkish textbooks do not disturb this part of Turkish history,” Erika Steinbach stated.
