Turkey has accused Austria of being supporter of terrorism and a center of Islamophobia.

The two countries' relations have sharply deteriorated since last month's failed coup attempt. Turkey has recalled its ambassador to Austria amid a growing spat between the two countries, state-run Anatolia News Agency reported on Monday.

Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu accused Austria at a press conference of being a center of racism and Islamophobia that supports Kurdish terrorist groups, adding Turkey would "review its relations" with Austria, DW reported.

"Unfortunately, the foundation for our bilateral relations and cooperation to continue as normal has disappeared," Cavusoglu said. Turkey also summoned the Austrian charge d'affaires to the foreign ministry in Ankara.
