Germany risks Turkey wrath with Armenian 'genocide' vote

People lay flowers on images of Armenian intellectuals, detained and deported in 1915, during a rally in Istanbul on April 24, 2016 to commemorate the 101th anniversary of the mass killing of Armenians in the Ottoman EmpireGermany’s parliament votes Thursday on a resolution that qualifies the massacre of Armenians by Ottoman forces as “genocide”, despite a strong warning from Turkey. The vote comes just over a year after President Joachim Gauck became Germany’s highest ranking official to describe the massacre as a “genocide”, drawing a fierce response from Turkey. Its timing is also awkward, as Germany and the European Union need Ankara to help stem a migrant influx even as tensions are rising between both sides over a string of issues, including human rights.
