Turkey slams EU officials in row over Netherlands campaigning
14 March 2017 International
Turkish foreign ministry has rejected a call by top EU officials to show restraint in a row with the Netherlands over political campaigning.
It described the appeal made yesterday by EU foreign policy Chief, Federica Mogherini and EU Enlargement Commissioner, Johannes Hahn as worthless.
The row erupted after the Dutch barred Turkish ministers from campaigning among expatriates for a referendum and Turkey in return barred the Dutch ambassador from returning to Ankara and also suspended high-level political talks.
