Swedish Wire - Sweden's prime minister has called his Turkish counterpart to distance himself from a parliament move branding the massacres of Armenians by Ottoman Turks as genocide, Ankara said Sunday.Sweden's Frederik Reinfeldt called Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Saturday evening to voice "his sadness and say that his government absolutely did not share the decision," Erdogan's office said in a statement.

Blaming the vote on "domestic politics," Reinfeldt said his government was "ready to do the necessary so that this unfounded decision does not harm bilateral relations," according to the text.
