European Commissioner for Enlargement and European Neighborhood Policy Stefan Fule said that it is wrong to politicize what happened in the past, referring to the adoption of a document by the Swedish parliament on the so-called Armenian genocide.

"It is not right to politicize what happened in the past," Fule said.

The U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Foreign Affairs adopted a resolution recognizing the so-called genocide with 23 to 22 votes against at a meeting on March 4. After a week, the Committee on Foreign Relations of the Swedish Parliament recognized the so-called Armenian genocide March 11.

As a sign of protest Ankara recalled its ambassadors Sweden and the United States.

Swedish Foreign Minister Carl Bildt said that the adoption of a resolution on the genocide will be a serious blow towards the normalization of Turkish-Armenian relations.
