Turkey's president Erdogan SAVAGES Dutch as 'NAZI REMNANTS' amid Rotterdam rally row

Foreign affairs minister Mevlüt Cavusoglu was planning to speak in support of a referendum giving sweeping new powers to the Turkish president.

Turkey said on Saturday it doesn't want the Netherlands ambassador to return "for some time" as relations quickly deteriorated between the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies after the Dutch government barred Turkey's foreign minister from flying to the country.

Cavusoglu said their would be "heavy sanctions" against the Netherlands for canceling his flight and Erdogan suggested the country may retaliate against Dutch flights.

Following the incident, Turkey's foreign ministry summoned the Dutch charge d'affaires, ministry sources said.

"We ask European countries, especially the Netherlands, to immediately return to democratic values they say they defend - the freedom of expression, action and assembly".

Alaska Airlines to add non-stop service between BWI and San Francisco

Rutte said it had been a tough decision given Turkey was "a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation ally", but he insisted: "I really think we made the right decision here".

Meanwhile, Turkish Family Minister Fatma Betul Sayan Kaya (below) travelled by road to the Netherlands from neighbouring Germany after the Dutch government revoked landing rights for the plane carrying Mr Cavusoglu.

"Ban our foreign minister from flying however much you like, but from now on, let's see how your flights will land in Turkey", he said. A threat of sanctions from Turkey if Cavusoglu were denied entry "made a reasonable solution impossible", he said.

The rally was banned for security reasons, Rotterdam's mayor said.

It cited public order and security concerns in withdrawing landing rights for Cavusoglu's flight.

As Erdogan seeks to extend his powers in the 16 April vote, he is targeting millions of expatriate voters eligible to cast a ballot in the referendum - including 1.4 million in Germany.

Ahead of Saturday's decision, Wilders had accused the government of a weak response to Turkish plans to send ministers to the Netherlands to campaign.

While Chancellor Angela Merkel has demanded that Turkey release a jailed German-Turkish reporter whom Erdogan has described as a spy, Ankara is pressing Germany to extradite fugitive military officers involved in the coup attempt.

The ban drew strong criticism from the Turkish government.
