Netherlands refuses landing rights for Turkish foreign minister's plane

At a rally in Istanbul on Saturday, Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdoğan lashed out at the Netherlands, after Dutch officials banned a rally in Rotterdam in his support and revoked permission for Turkish foreign minister Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu to address expatriate voters there.

The foreign minister had planned to hold a Turkish expat rally in the run up to April's constitutional referendum.

President Erdogan reacted to the ban on his foreign minister by threatening to block Dutch flights.

"They do not know politics or worldwide diplomacy", said Erdogan and added, "these Nazi remnants, they are fascists" with the crowds booing. "These are the remains of Nazis, they are fascists", he added.

He also repeated the government's charges that bans on rallies are "fascist practices".

He had previously threatened sanctions if he was refused entry. We will not accept that.

Mr Cavusoglu said Turkey would present a final text to the bloc on progress of the deal "and either it will all be cancelled, including the visa liberalisation and migrant deal, or it will all be implemented".

TRT World's Kilmeny Duchardt reports from Ankara.

Dutch political leaders hit the campaign trail Saturday, criss-crossing the country to woo voters ahead of next week's elections now overshadowed by the bitter row with Turkey.

Mr Wilders has already criticised the Dutch government for not being tougher on Mr Erdogan's record on human rights.

Pregnant Ciara Involved in a Car Accident
Neither she nor her husband, Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson, have responded to the accident on social media. She was spotted "clutching her chest and shoulder, but walking around and talking on her phone" after the accident.

Wilders is no stranger to controversy as he often spouts Islamophobic rhetoric.

Elsewhere in Europe, Austrian Chancellor Christian Kern has called for an European Union ban on Turkish politicians campaigning for the referendum.

"If the Netherlands cancels my flight, we will impose severe sanctions on them that will affect it economically and politically", the foreign minister said in remarks in a TV interview on CNN Turk.

Mr Cavusoglu was originally scheduled to speak at a rally in support of a Yes vote in Turkey's upcoming referendum, which would give Mr Erdogan greatly increased powers.

The legal opinion criticized the Turkish parliament's approval of the amendments when several deputies from the second-largest opposition party were in jail.
