Ambassador recalled

* The Turkish Foreign Ministry has recalled its ambassador to Uganda after she was photographed at a reception for Turkey's annual Republic Day wearing a dress reportedly inspired by ancient Greece. Ambassador Sedef Yavuzalp hosted the reception in Kampala for the annual 29 October holiday marking the founding of the modern Turkish Republic in 1923 by Mustafa Kemal Ataturk. Such associations go down badly with Turkish nationalists who stringently emphasise the Turkishness of the modern state despite the long history of Greek and Roman civilisation on its territory.
