ANKARA - Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan on Tuesday slammed as "discriminatory and racist" a French parliament bill making it illegal to deny the mass killing of Armenian by Ottoman Turks nearly a century a century ago was genocide.

Erdogan said Turkey would implement measures against fellow NATO member France "step by step."
