Turkey blasts Germany after MPs back Armenia 'genocide' motion

A Turkish nationalist protester wearing Ottoman clothes holds placard during a protest against Germany in front of the Germany consulate in IstanbulTurkey recalled its envoy to Berlin and threatened further measures after Germany’s parliament labelled the World War I massacre of Armenians by Ottoman forces as genocide. Berlin’s lower house of parliament overwhelmingly approved a non-binding resolution on the 1915-16 killings — one MP voted against and another abstained — in a move touching a raw nerve in Turkish-European relations. The use of the word “genocide” goes to the heart of a long-running battle for world opinion between Armenia and Turkey over the massacres committed a century ago.
