TURKISH PRESIDENT CALLS ON EU TO RAISE THEIR VOICES AGAINST NETHERLANDS

Ankara, March 12 (QNA) – President of Turkey Recep Tayyip Erdogan called on all EU institutions and all institutions working to protect democracy, human rights and rule of law to impose sanctions on Netherlands, following the latter’s recent bans on two Turkish ministers.

Erdogan reiterated that the Netherlands would be “made to pay” for its treatment of its ministers, adding there would be no reconciliation with the NATO ally until then. He didn’t elaborate.

He said that Europe must refute racism and anti-Islam, and work to create a ground to discuss a common future.

The Dutch government barred Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu from flying to Rotterdam on Saturday and later stopped Family Minister Fatma Betul Sayan Kaya from entering the Turkish consulate there, before escorting her out of the country to Germany. (QNA)
