06.09 14:05
Yerevan/Mediamax/. Co-chairman of the German Bundestag’s Alliance ‘90/The Greens political party Cem Ozdemir said that the Bundestag resolution on the Armenian Genocide cannot be overruled.

“In an almost unanimous decision the German Bundestag acknowledged the genocide against the Armenians. Since the German Bundestag decided on this resolution as a constitutional body, only the German Bundestag itself could overrule it,” German parliamentary of Turkish descent told Mediamax.

He stressed that German Federal government shares the assessment expressed in the resolution.

Cem Ozdemir emphasized that with this resolution the German parliamentaries intended to admit the German Empire’s own guilt and failure in the year of 1915.

“It was never intended to point the finger at present-day Turkey. We hope for an open and respectful debate in Turkey about the crimes of the (so called) Young Turks, and furthermore, we hope that Turkey and Armenia develop and intensify their good-neighbourly relations,” Co-chairman of Alliance ‘90/The Greens told Mediamax.

Cem Ozdemir is the author of “Remembrance and Commemoration of the Genocide of Armenians and Other Christian Minorities 101 Years Ago” resolution. The resolution was approved by a majority of votes on June 2, 2016.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel stated recently that she “is not distancing herself from a Bundestag resolution on Armenian Genocide”.
