The adoption of a new resolution recognizing the Armenian Genocide by the Italian Parliament and declaring April 24 as a mourning day by the French President has strongly annoyed Ankara.

According to Turkish Milliyet, Turkish Presidential Communications Director Fahrettin Altun condemned the decision of Macron.

On April 10, President Macron signed a decree declaring April 24 as the national day of memory of the Armenian Genocide.

Italy’s lower house of parliament – the Chamber of Deputies – on Wednesday approved a motion calling on the government to officially recognize the Armenian Genocide and elevate the profile of the issue on an international level.
