The Foreign Ministry warned that Israel's possible recognition of the Armenian genocide, could lead to the serious deterioration of Israel's ties with Turkey.
A Knesset committee discussed the possibility of setting a memorial day for the Armenian genocide by the Turkish people nearly 100 years ago, marking a first in Israeli history. Several MKs expressed support for the move, saying that Israel, as a nation of the Jewish people who have experienced genocide, cannot ignore genocides in other countries. However, the recognition of the Armenian genocide has long been a sensitive diplomatic issue due to the implications it has on Israel's relationship with Turkey, which denies it.
