    Turkey is set to ban the Dutch ambassador and suspend high-level diplomatic relations with the Netherlands in retaliation at the country’s decision to block its ministers from campaigning in the country.

    Turkish Prime Minister Numan Kurtulmus announced in a press conference on Monday (13 Monday) that the Dutch ambassador would be barred from returning to Ankara.

    The move comes after Dutch authorities prevented Turkish ministers from speaking at rallies in support of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

    The controversial leader is relying on the expatriate vote to secure victory in an upcoming referendum, set to decide on the expansion Turkish presidential powers.

    1. Ironically, by treating the expatriates as a fifth column,

    Erdogan is indirectly campaigning for the xenophobe PVV party.

    "Someone hacks the DNC allowing all of America to see how the DNC operates as one of the most corrupt political machines in national history. Ergo, Hillary Clinton should be installed as President by judicial fiat. And if you do not agree to this scheme you deserve to be brought up on charges of treason because fascism." - NUGrrl, december 2016 “Once a person has been determined to be an UNTRUSTWORTHY LIAR, their pretend stances on important issues are simply not relevant to rational discussion.” – Ida Briggs, September 2016
