Turkey: Germany recognizing Armenian genocide is "historic mistake"

Germany's parliament has made a "historic mistake" in recognizing the Armenian genocide, Turkey's government spokesman Numan Kurtulmus says.

Kurtulmus rejects the decision, on his Twitter account, saying it is not relevant to Turkey, and says Ankara's full response would be forthcoming "on every platform."

The decision is "not fitting for the friendly relationship between Turkey and Germany."
