Austria Demands Recall of Turkey's Ambassador

RECALL YOUR AMBASSADOR OR I WILL NOT COME TO TURKEY

The ambassadorial crisis has escalated between Turkey and Austria in the weeks before Austrian President Heinz Fischer's scheduled visit to Turkey in May.

In the messages sent to Ankara through diplomatic channels, Austria demanded that Turkey summon its ambassador, Ecvet Tezcan, in
Vienna, who caused a problem with an interview with Die Presse newspaper last November.

The Austrian government said otherwise the president's visit to Turkey might be in danger. In his interview, Ambassador Tezcan criticized Austrian government's policy toward foreigners, and said "Turks in Austria were forced to establish ghettos."
