European Parliament Resolution: Turkey's Recognition of Armenian Genocide is Prerequisite to its Accession to the European Union

In a resolution adopted by the European Parliament on 28th September, 2005, by 356 votes in favour, 181 against and 125 abstentions, Parliament noted the Commission's and Council's view that access negotiations with Turkey can start on 3 October.

As part of the same resolution, the European Parliament also noted the fact that Turkish authorities still had not satisfied the requirements concerning the Armenian questions such as they were expressed by the European Parliament in its resolution of June 18, 1987 calling on Turkey to recognise the Genocide of the Armenians in Ottoman Turkey, and the European Parliament therefore resolved to "call on Turkey to recognize the Genocide of the Armenians," and that the Parliament considers this act a "prerequisite to accession to the European Union."
