Turkey's Ambassador to Sweden Zergun Koruturk on arrival in Istanbul expressed her regret on deterioration of bilateral relations between the two countries, Cihan Agency reported.
After approving the document, Ankara recalled its ambassador from Stockholm for consultations. A similar decision was adopted by the U.S. House of Representatives Foreign Affairs Committee 23 votes to 22 last week. Ankara recalled its ambassadors to these countries to protest resolutions on the so-called "Armenian genocide" adopted by the U.S. Congress and Swedish Parliament.
Turkey's ambassador Koruturk said that she was recalled for consultations in Ankara. She didn't specify the date of her return to Stockholm.
Swedish Foreign Minister Carl Bildt, while commenting the issue, said that the adoption of the resolution on the so-called "Armenian genocide" will be a serious blow to the steps towards the normalization of Turkish-Armenian relations.
According to Foreign Minister, historical events must not be politicized.
