The Dutch Parliament on Thursday voted to recognize that Turkey committed genocide against Armenians during World War I.
It "noted" that the Dutch government would not abide by the parliament's decision.
Meanwhile acting Dutch Foreign Minister Sigrid Kaag quickly tempered the motion, saying even though the ruling four-party coalition voted for the motion, the government will "restrain" itself.
She urged "utmost caution when applying the term "genocide" to past events".
Kaag said that she continues to talk about "the issue of the Armenian genocide".
Relations between Turkey and the Netherlands soured prior to the Dutch general elections on March 14.
The Turkish statement made reference to the 1995 Srebrenica massacres, in which victims were killed after being turned away from a Dutch-run United Nations base where thousands had sought refuge towards the end of the Bosnian war.
"We strongly condemn the decision taken today by the chamber of deputies of the Netherlands to recognise as genocide the events of 1915", the Turkish foreign ministry said in a statement.
Last week, two motions were introduced in the Tweede Kamer-the Dutch legislature-by the Christian Union Party calling on a definitive recognition of the Armenian Genocide and mandating the visit by the country's foreign minister to Yerevan in April when commemoration of the Armenian Genocide is held at Dzidzernagapert. At the time, Turkey also summoned their Dutch envoy back to Ankara.
Describing the Dutch parliament's decision as "baseless", the ministry said the decision has no place in either history or justice.
On Feb. 5, the Netherlands said it would not attempt to appoint an ambassador to Turkey for now.
The incidents drew severe criticism from Ankara and the foreign ministry asked the off-duty Dutch ambassador in Ankara, who was on leave, not to return "for a while".
Most scholars outside Turkey consider the killings were a genocide, or an attempt to destroy a people in part or whole.
Some three dozen countries, hundreds of local government bodies and worldwide organizations have so far recognized the killings of 1.5 million Armenians in the Ottoman Empire as Genocide.
