YEREVAN — Armenia hailed the Bundestag resolution, with Foreign Minister Edward Nalbandian praising “Germany’s valuable contribution” to international recognition of the Armenian genocide and global efforts to prevent more crimes against humanity.

In a written statement Nalbandian said, “Armenia welcomes the adoption of the resolution by the Bundestag of the Federal Republic of Germany on recognition of the Genocide committed against Armenians and other Christian peoples.

President Joachim Gauck’s statement on the occasion of the Centenary of the Armenian Genocide together with this resolution adopted by Bundestag are Germany’s valuable contribution not only to the international recognition and condemnation of the Armenian Genocide, but also to the universal fight for the prevention of genocides, crimes against humanity.

While Germany and Austria, as former allies of the Ottoman Empire, are today acknowledging their part of responsibility in the Armenian Genocide, the authorities of Turkey are continuing to obstinately reject the undeniable fact of genocide committed by the Ottoman Empire.

The international community has been waiting for 101 years that Turkey would face its history.”
