    meaning of : recalled

    The Indian government angrily rejected the statement, and a year later Sun got his comeuppance. India conveyed Beijing a message that unless Sun was recalled, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh would not send a final list of dates for his visit to China. The Prime Ministerís Office held its ground despite Chinaís initial refusal to concede.

    Please explain to me what "recalled" means in this context.
