Turkey warns the Dutch of future repercussions

Turkey warns the Dutch of future repercussions

"Lets see how your planes will come to Turkey".

"There are many Turkish Dutch whose large assemblies will likely generate pressure on Dutch society".

Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte on Saturday denounced remarks by Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan likening the Dutch to Nazis as "crazy", adding it was "way out of line".

Cavusoglu, speaking in an interview on CNN Turk television, said if the Netherlands refused him permission to fly to Rotterdam, Turkey would respond with harsh economic and political sanctions.

Meanwhile, the Turkish Foreign Ministry summoned the Dutch charge d'affaires Saturday following the decision to bar Cavusoglu's flight.

Several German municipalities canceled similar political events last week, barring Turkish officials from rallying support among the country's Turkish politician, some 1.4 million of whom are eligible to vote in the upcoming referendum. "Cancelling the flight permission of our ministers will have heavy results", Cavusoglu said.

Later on March 11, Erdogan threatened to retaliate by barring Dutch diplomats from flying to Turkey, as he said Netherlands' behavior was reminiscent of Nazism.

Mevlut Cavusoglu was hoping to attend a Rotterdam rally in support of a Turkish referendum which would give Erdogan new powers.

49ers to release Torrey Smith
On Monday, he reported the San Francisco 49ers had released veteran wideout Torrey Smith , even citing a source in his tweet. He played collegiate football at the University of Maryland and was drafted by the Baltimore Ravens in the 2011 NFL Draft.

But the foreign minister said he would visit Rotterdam regardless, as he accused the government of effectively taking Turkish citizens hostage by banning the meeting.

The family minister's vehicle was intercepted by Dutch police while entering the country.

Reuters quoted a Dutch official as saying that Turkey's "sanctions threat had made [the] search for [a] reasonable solution impossible".

"They do not know politics or global diplomacy", Mr Erdogan said".

"As far as the Turkish government is concerned, they couldn't be happier than they are today".

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan has described the Dutch as "Nazi remnants and fascists" in an escalating row over demonstrations.

Relations between Ankara and the European Union have deteriorated significantly in the previous year amid the arrest of thousands of people in purges and security crackdowns after an attempted coup in July.
