Erdoğan brands Dutch 'Nazi remnants' for barring Turkish MP

The Foreign Minister of Turkey Mevlut Cavusoglu speaks during a visit of the booth of Turkey at the tourism fair ITB in Berlin Germany Wednesday Council of Europe: Turkey's Constitutional Changes a 'Dangerous Step Backwards'

"It is uncommon and unwanted that his minister would go and campaign in Holland for a referendum to change the constitution there to make him [Erdogan] more of a dictator".

Erdogan's fierce response comes after Dutch foreign ministry announcement on canceling Cavusoglu's flight permit on grounds of "security" and "public safety", as Rutte himself explained.

Turkish family minister's vehicle was intercepted by Dutch police while entering the country late Saturday, Turkish Consul-General in Rotterdam Sadin Ayyildiz said.

Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu also warned Turkey would impose heavy sanctions if his visits were blocked.

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

Turkey is attempting to garner support among ex-pats in the European Union for an upcoming referendum on extending the powers of the Turkish President, Recep Tayyip Erdogan. "That makes the search for a reasonable solution impossible." the Dutch government said.

"But these meetings cannot contribute to tensions in our society and everyone who wants to contribute to an event must comply with instructions from the authorities so that public order and security can be guaranteed". Despite the Turkish leadership's efforts a number of pre-voting rallies were cancelled in Germany, the Netherlands and Switzerland.

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

He had already been barred from addressing a Turkish rally on the upcoming constitutional referendum by local authorities in the city.

It said the Turkish government "does not want to respect the rules in this matter".

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

Relations between Turkey and the European Union have deteriorated in recent months, with Erdogan angry at criticism from EU members for waging a mass crackdown on opponents since he saw off a coup attempt last July.
