Turkey condemns US resolution on Armenian genocide

The Turkish Parliament issued a joint declaration on Friday condemning the United States Senate's passing of a resolution in favor of officially declaring the 1.5 million Armenian deaths at the hands of the Ottoman government as a genocide.

Earlier this week, the US Senate passed a resolution to serve as remembrance of the Ottoman Empire's genocide against the Armenian people, which Turkey criticized and disagreed with, calling it a tragedy with losses on both sides.

Back in October the US House of Representatives voted in favor of recognizing the systematic killings of Armenians from 1915 to 1923 as a genocide.
