ANKARA (Sputnik) — The Turkish government expects Berlin to voice its stance on the issue, which will be different from that of the Bundestag, he added.
"We will take action against the German parliament's resolution. We cannot stay silent," Cavusoglu stated as aired by the Turkish Radio and Television Corporation (TRT).
Earlier, Cavusoglu called the resolution a "denigration" of history. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said that it would have a serious effect on relations between Germany and Turkey.
Some 1.2 million Armenians were slaughtered or starved to death by the Ottomans during and after World War I. Germany has admitted its role in failing to prevent the genocide as an ally of the Ottoman Empire at the time. The Ottomans' policy of ethnic violence has been recognized by many European countries and Russia as genocide. Ankara maintains that Turkish nationals were also victimized.
