STOCKHOLM, Sweden (A.W.)—Turkey recalled its ambassador to Sweden for consultations following the recognition of the Armenian Genocide by the Swedish Parliament. According to Ankara, the vote was “based
upon major errors and without foundation.”
In reaction to the vote, Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan canceled his visit to Stockholm next week.
Only a week ago, Turkey recalled its ambassador to the U.S. following the vote by the House Foreign Relations Committee on the Armenian Genocide Resolution.
“Our ambassador to Washington Namik Tan was recalled tonight to Ankara for consultations after the development,” read a statement issued by the Turkish prime minister’s office minutes after the U.S. congressional panel approved the resolution on March 4. “We condemn this resolution accusing Turkey of a crime that it has not committed.”
