Turkish PM, German Chancellor discuss planned vote on Armenian Genocide bill

Shortly before the planned vote on the Armenian Genocide resolution at the German Bundestag, German Chancellor Angela Merkel had a phone conversation with Turkey’s new Prime Minister Binali Yildirim, Spiegel reports.

The PM called the resolution a “baseless and unjust political judgment.” He said “Turkey and millions of Turks in Germany” are watching the developments with concern.

The Turkish PM said “Ankara expects a “respectful attitude” from the Federal Government and the Bundestag.

The Bundestag is set to vote on the bill on June 2.
