The resolution was passed with a “striking majority” said President of the German Bundestag Norbert Lammert, with only one politician voting against it and one abstaining.
Between 600,000 and 1.5 million Armenians, and other minorities, are estimated to have been killed by what was then-Ottoman Turkey during World War One.

Turkey has now recalled its ambassador to Germany, in response to the resolution.
