The Justice and Development Party (AK Party), The Republican People's Party (CHP) and the Nationalist Movement Party (MHP) strongly condemned and rejected German resolution on 1915 events in a joint declaration at the parliament.

''We strongly condemn the resolution, which is based on groundless Armenian allegations'' the declaration said.

The Peoples' Democratic Party (HDP) did not sign the declaration.

The lower house of Germany's Federal Parliament approved a controversial motion labeling the 1915 events as 'genocide' on Thursday, disregarding warnings from Turkey.

President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, Prime Minister Binali Yıldırım and Nationalist Movement Party (MHP) chairman Devlet Bahçeli criticized the resolution and underscored that it would damage relations between Turkey and Germany.
