The federal government has not ruled out severing diplomatic ties with Turkey in the wake of inflammatory comments by President Recep Tayyip Erdogan. Prime Minister Scott Morrison has requested urgent talks with Turkey’s ambassador to Australia, and he has demanded an apology after Erdogan said Australian tourists could return home in coffins in reprisal for the Christchurch mosque attacks. The diplomatic row has cast doubt on future Gallipoli commemorations and heightened concerns about the safety of Australians who travel to Turkey for the upcoming ANZAC Day service.
