"According to the Beta Agency, unfortunately a group of demonstrators stepped out from the line and threw stones on Turkish Embassy in Belgrade, and we strongly condemn such acts of hooligans," Ambassador Vladimir Curgus said.

The ambassador also said he was recalled to Belgrade by the decision of Serbian Foreign Ministry after Turkey said Monday that it recognized Kosovo's independence.

"Declaration on independence does not contribute to the stability of the region and its recognition by Turkey is not an asset for bilateral relations between Serbia and Turkey," Curgus said.
