ErdoganEl president turc, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, (A la foto) has warned the Netherlands it will “pay the price” for harming ties after two of his ministers were barred.

Els dos ministres no van poder dirigir-se dissabte als votants turcs a Rotterdam, amb un d'ells escortat fins a la frontera alemanya.

The Dutch government said such rallies would stoke tensions days before the Netherlands’ general election.

Turkey’s ties with several EU countries have become strained over the rallies.

Les manifestacions tenen com a objectiu augmentar el suport entre els turcs que viuen a Europa que poden votar en un referèndum sobre l'ampliació dels poders presidencials turcs.

Fatma Betul Sayan Kaya, Turkey’s family minister, had arrived in Rotterdam by road on Saturday, but was denied entry to the consulate and taken to the German border by Dutch police.

El ministre d'Afers Exteriors, Mevlut Cavusoglu, va intentar volar, però se li va negar l'entrada.

‘Capital of fascism’

Diversos països de la UE s'han vist abocats a la disputa pels mítings:

  • Cavusoglu called the Netherlands the “capital of fascism” after he was refused entry
  • Erdogan accused Germany of “Nazi practices” after similar rallies there were cancelled – words Chancellor Angela Merkel described as “unacceptable”
  • De Dinamarca El primer ministre Lars Lokke Rasmussen ajornat a planned meeting with Turkey’s prime minister, saying he was concerned that “democratic principles are under great pressure” in Turkey
  • Local French officials have allowed a Turkish rally in Metz, saying it does not pose a public order threat – while France’s El ministeri d'Afers Exteriors ha instat Turquia a evitar provocacions

Mr Erdogan accused countries in the West of “Islamophobia” and demanded international organisations impose sanctions on the Netherlands.

“I have said that I had thought that Nazism was over, but that I was wrong. Nazism is alive in the West,” he said.

Va donar les gràcies a França per permetre a Cavusoglu viatjar a Metz per dirigir-se a una manifestació.

The Netherlands’ Prime Minister Mark Rutte has demanded Erdogan apologize for likening the Dutch to “Nazi fascists”.

“This country was bombed during the Second World War by Nazis. It’s totally unacceptable to talk in this way.”

Mr Erdogan’s comments were “completely unacceptable”, and the Netherlands would have to consider its response if Turkey continued on its current path, he added.

El govern holandès ho és davant d'un greu repte electoral del partit antiislam de Geert Wilders a les eleccions de dimecres.

Reports say the owner of a venue in the Swedish capital, Stockholm, has also cancelled a pro-Erdogan rally on Sunday that was to have been attended by Turkey’s agriculture minister.

Sweden’s foreign ministry said it was not involved in the decision and that the event could take place elsewhere.

Quina és la fila voltant?

Turquia celebra un referèndum el 16 d'abril sobre si passar d'una república parlamentària a una república presidencial, més semblant als Estats Units.

Si té èxit, donaria nous poders al president, que li permetrien nomenar ministres, preparar el pressupost, triar la majoria dels jutges superiors i promulgar determinades lleis per decret.

What’s more, the president alone would be able to announce a state of emergency and dismiss parliament.

There are 5.5 million Turks living outside the country, with 1.4 million eligible voters in Germany alone – and the Yes campaign is keen to get them on side.

Per tant, s'han previst una sèrie de concentracions per a països amb un gran nombre de votants elegibles, com ara Alemanya, Àustria i els Països Baixos.

Per què els països intenten evitar les concentracions?

Molts dels països, inclosa Alemanya, han citat problemes de seguretat com a motiu oficial.

El ministre d'Afers Exteriors austríac, Sebastian Kurz, va dir que Erdogan no era benvingut a organitzar mítings, ja que això podria augmentar la fricció i dificultar la integració.

Many European nations have also expressed deep disquiet about Turkey’s response to the July coup attempt and the country’s perceived slide towards authoritarianism under President Erdogan.

Germany in particular has been critical of the mass arrests and purges that followed – with nearly 100,000 civil servants removed from their posts.
