Dutch Parliament recognizes Armenian genocide; Minister to attend commemoration

Turkish security barricades surround the Dutch embassy the green building at the center in Ankara Turkey Monday

Turkey has summoned the Dutch chargé d'affaires to Ankara in protest at an "unacceptable" move by the Netherlands' lower house of parliament to approve two motions recognizing as genocide the killing of as many as 1.5 million Armenians in 1915.

The bills risk further deterioration of relations between Turkey and the Netherlands.

Both of motions in the Netherlands were submitted by Christin Union parliamentarian Joel Voordewind. All four coalition parties supported the motions.

In 1915, hundreds of thousands of Armenians, including women and children, were murdered by the Ottoman Empire, the precursor nation to modern-day Turkey.

BJP MP Janardan Mishra cleans toilet during school visit
In a video released by Misra on Twitter, the Rewa MP can be seen removing the soil that had clogged the Indian-style toilet. In another video posted on his profile, the BJP leader can be seen shaking hands with students and inspecting their nails.

Joël Voordewind said in a tweet earlier today that "the House of Representatives will recognize the Armenian genocide and this year the commemoration in Armenia will be attended at the government level". The Turks also say that the Armenians were a danger because they were fighting on the side of the Russian enemy.

As a result, whenever countries, blocs, organizations or prominent global citizens recognize the Armenian genocide, Ankara cries foul.

The Dutch government now refers to the issue as "the question of Armenian genocide" and will continue to do so, RTL said. But a majority in parliament believes it is time for that to change.

"In this context, we invite Dutch politicians to review their biased attitude against Turkey and not to politicize history", the statement said, adding that the Netherlands could back Turkey's proposal of an independent joint history commission open for academics expert on Ottoman history if it wants to contribute to the solution of this historic issue. "Our country houses the capital of worldwide law after all, so we must not be afraid to do the right thing here too", Dutch politician Joël Voordewind said Friday.
