Turkey warns Germany over Armenian Genocide vote
Turkey has criticized plans by Germany’s parliament to recognize the World War I killings of Armenians as genocide, the Associated Press reports.
Germany’s parliament is to hold a vote on a motion describing the deaths as genocide this week.
Turkish Deputy Prime Minister Numan Kurtulmus said Monday that Germany — home to a large Turkish community — should “act with caution.”
He said parliaments should not decide on history and that all countries should make documents available to historians so they can shed light on the killings.
