Turkey recalls envoy to Sweden over Armenian vote

Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan said on Thursday he has recalled Turkey's ambassador to Stockholm over a Swedish parliament vote branding the World War One killing of Armenians by Ottoman forces as genocide.


"We strongly condemn this resolution, which is made for political calculations. It does not correspond to the close friendship of our two nations. We are recalling our ambassador for consultations," Erdogan said in a statement on his website. (Reuters)
