Prime Minister Binali Yıldırım made a statement to the press about the Armenian Genocide resolution of Bundestag: “This voting is nonsense. This is a common incident that happened in every country and it happened in 1915 in Turkey, under the conditions of World War I.”
Chancellor Merkel made a statement about her planned meeting with Erdoğan and said that the lifting of immunity of the members of Turkish Parliament might have grave consequences. It is expected that the migration deal, lifting of parliamentary immunity and Bundestag's bill for the Armenian Genocide will be discussed at the meeting.
In the open letter published in Die Zeit, 43 academics, artist and intellectuals demanded the Armenian Genocide draft is accepted.
