    Turkey has also canceled a scheduled visit of Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan to the Scandinavian country.

    Ankara last week recalled its ambassador to the United States for consultations after the Foreign Affairs Committee of the U.S. House of Representatives voted in support of a resolution condemning as genocide the killing of an estimated 1.5 million Armenians by Turks during World War I.
