Turkey recalls envoy to Austria for consultations

Baku, April 23, AZERTAC

Turkey has said it is recalling its ambassador to Austria after parties represented in parliament signed a declaration recognizing the events of 1915 as genocide of Armenians, according to Associated Press.

A Foreign Ministry statement protested against the move and said Austria had no right to "accuse the Turkish people of a crime."

It said ambassador Hasan Gogus was being recalled to Ankara for consultations.
