ISTANBUL: Turkey on Friday said Germany was still a key ally despite Ankara’s fury over a parliament resolution that recognised the mass killings of Armenians by Ottoman forces as genocide. Seeking to keep the dispute from erupting into a full-blown crisis, Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim emphasised the key relationship would continue while Berlin said ties were strong enough to weather splits.
