Armenia welcomes the German parliament's decision to recognize the Ottoman Empire's killing of ethnic Armenians and other Christians a century ago as genocide, Foreign Minister Edward Nalbandian says in a statement.
"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," Nalbandian says in a statement on the Armenian Foreign Ministry's website.
The international community has been waiting for 101 years for Turkey to acknowledge the genocide, Nalbandian says.
