Turkey us a huge market for livestock imports and countries are dying to get in.feedback

Bulent Tunc

There are many alternatives. Turkey is a huge market for livestock imports and countries are dying to get in.feedback

Omer Celik

Dutch businessmen who invest, have businesses and create employment in Turkey are included in this (call). They are definitely not part of the crisis. The private sector, business world, tourists and the people of the Netherlands are not a part of the crisis.feedback

Recep Tayyip Erdogan

We know the Netherlands and the Dutch from the Srebrenica massacre. We know how rotten their character is from their massacre of 8,000 Bosnians there. Nobody should try to give us lessons on morality, especially not those who have blood on their hands. The Netherlands, with its display of state terrorism, has caused huge damage to Europe and the EU. Now, for those who want to cooperate with the EU, it has ceased to be a symbol of human rights and freedom. Europe is too important to be left at the mercy of rogue states.feedback

Thomas De Maiziere

Any leads from Turkey on such activities in Germany that are usable in court are very welcome – but we don't need extra tuition on how to deal with fighting PKK terrorism that is supported and organized from Germany. Turkey itself remains an important partner for us in the fight against international terrorism. We will not tolerate it if representatives of other states try to position whole groups of the population against the country in which they have lived freely for many years or since their birth, where they work, go to school, bring up their children, in which they are at home.feedback

Thomas De Maiziere

We should not endanger the integration successes of the last decades for a short-term, questionable success.feedback

Angelino Alfano

We have an obligation to ask the parties involved to tone down the rhetoric, to bring the level of argument down. We can however understand the decisions taken by certain countries, starting with Holland.feedback

Mark Rutte

We will not lower ourselves to this level. It is totally unacceptable.feedback

Numan Kurtulmus

We are doing exactly what they did to us. We are not allowing planes carrying Dutch diplomats or envoys from landing in Turkey or using our airspace. Those creating this crisis are responsible for fixing it.feedback

Mark Rutte

I believe they just wanted to come here to talk with Turkish people about the referendum. And again, it was very difficult to come to logistical arrangements.feedback

Mark Rutte

Turkey is a proud country, but also the Netherlands is a proud country. We will never negotiate under threats, under these type of utterings of the foreign minister. So that's why we stopped discussions and we told him that he was no longer welcome that Saturday.feedback

Omer Celik

The democracy and state of law have been violated in the Netherlands. Therefore, the EU, which depends on these values, needs to implement a very sensitive and effective policy to protect the values. If no action is taken, it will not be possible to talk about the European Union being a political union. We will surely have sanctions against the latest actions by the Netherlands. We will answer them with these.feedback

Angela Merkel

These comparisons are totally misleading, they belittle the suffering, especially in the case of the Netherlands which suffered so much under the Nazis. This is completely unacceptable and that's why the Netherlands have my full support and solidarity, especially also my Dutch colleague Mark Rutte.feedback

Jens Stoltenberg - NATO

I will encourage all allies to show mutual respect to be calm and have a measured approach to contribute to deescalate the tensions. I think it is important that we now focus on everything that unites us.feedback

Joop van Holsteijn

Immigration and integration, and the relationship of the Netherlands with Turkey, will be rather salient suddenly, and Wilders can be considered the issue owner here. Following this line of reasoning, Wilders may profit, if only due to some strategic PVV supporters who decide to follow their heart and not their mind on Wednesday.feedback

Geert Wilders

The Netherlands can see that these people are Turks, not Dutch. They have Dutch passports, but they don't belong here.feedback

Lars Loekke Rasmussen

With the current Turkish attacks on Holland the meeting can not be seen separated from that. I have therefore proposed to my Turkish colleague that the meeting will be postponed.feedback

Mark Rutte

This has never happened before – a country saying someone is not welcome and then them coming regardless.feedback

Ahmet Hakan - Hurriyet Daily News

The Netherlands, with its fascism, its low-quality and impertinence, has met these needs beautifully.feedback

Huseyin Kocabiyik

We shouldn't be angry at the Germans and the Dutch. We should perhaps thank them a little. They contributed to our 'yes' votes by at least two points. You can be sure of it. As a retired former political adviser and a researcher, I can say for sure that these will cause a substantial rise in the votes of our citizens living in Europe, while inside Turkey, it will affect both the undecided voters and even some voters from the 'no' camp.feedback

Giray Sadik

It's difficult to predict what effect it will have on the referendum.feedback

Thomas De Maiziere

A Turkish campaign has no business being here in Germany.feedback

Lars Loekke Rasmussen

Such a visit could not take place in light of the current attacks by Turkey against the Netherlands. Therefore I proposed to my Turkish colleague to postpone our meeting.feedback

Recep Tayyip Erdogan

I had said that Nazism has risen from the grave. I said 'I thought Nazism was over but I was wrong.' In fact, Nazism is alive in the West. What took place in the Netherlands was the trampling of diplomacy, international law, practice, decency. Is there a peep coming out of Europe? No. Why? Because they won't bite one another. They are all the same. The Netherlands did not behave like a European Union member state governed by the rule of law, but like a banana republic.feedback

Mark Rutte

This country, as the mayor of Rotterdam pointed out yesterday, was bombed during the Second World War by the Nazis. It's totally unacceptable to talk in this way. Turkey is a proud nation; the Netherlands is a proud nation. We can never do business under those sorts of threats and blackmail.feedback

Recep Tayyip Erdogan

The Netherlands is nothing like an EU country. It is acting like a banana republic. The world has witnessed how those who had lectured Turkey on human rights, rule of law and democracy for years are far from those values. Now they are trying to find excuses for their bad behaviour.feedback

Mark Rutte

Some Turkish politicians are talking about Nazism and fascism in relationship to The Netherlands. This country, as the Mayor of Rotterdam pointed out yesterday, was bombed during the second World War by the Nazis. It's totally unacceptable to talk in this way. So of course there is absolutely no way excuses can be made, they should make an excuse for what they have done.feedback

Recep Tayyip Erdogan

The West has thrown off its mask in the past days. What we have seen is a clear manifestation of Islamophobia. I have said that I had thought Nazism was over, but that I was wrong. Nazism is alive in the West.feedback

Mark Rutte

We've ended up in a bad movie. The Turks have ramped this up themselves.feedback

Cas Mudde

The explanation for the Dutch-Turkish 'crisis' this weekend is pretty straightforward. Both countries are currently engulfed in electoral campaigns that are dominated by authoritarian nativism.feedback

Angela Merkel

This rejection also fully applies, of course, to friendly countries such as the Netherlands. Especially with respect to the Netherlands, which suffered under National Socialism, that is completely unacceptable. And that is why the Netherlands has my full support and solidarity.feedback

Numan Kurtulmus

You will see that, in the end, they will come to the point where they will apologize.feedback

Recep Tayyip Erdogan

They will certainly pay the price, and also learn what diplomacy is. We will teach them international diplomacy. Listen Netherlands, you'll jump once, you'll jump twice, but my people will thwart your game. You can cancel our foreign minister's flight as much as you want, but let's see how your flights will come to Turkey now. They don't know diplomacy or politics. They are Nazi remnants. They are fascists.feedback

Mark Rutte

Turkey is a proud nation. The Netherlands is a proud nation. We can never do business under those sorts of threats and blackmail. The biggest problem in this case is that Turkey is talking about Turkish citizens who they want to talk to. These are Dutch citizens who possibly also have voting rights in Turkey.feedback

Recep Tayyip Erdogan

Hey Holland! If you are sacrificing Turkish-Dutch relations for the sake of the elections on Wednesday, you will pay a price.feedback

Mark Rutte

This is a man who yesterday made us out to be fascists and a country of Nazis. I'm going to de-escalate, but not by offering apologies. Are you nuts? We are in the wrong situation with Turkey at the moment. We asked the minister not to come because of the tensions we expected in Rotterdam and because we are not comfortable with such a visit. A visit from a Turkish minister to the Dutch people to talk about a Turkish referendum, and still they come.feedback

Recep Tayyip Erdogan

If you sacrifice Turkish-Dutch relations to the elections held on Wednesday, you will pay the price. I thought Nazism was dead, but I was wrong. Nazism is still widespread in the West. The West has shown its true face.feedback

Beatrice Bozkus

I am disappointed by Holland because they speak of democracy and freedom but it is not the case. To not allow a speech, it's sad. We are all disappointed.feedback

Hans Michelbach

There is no prospect of entry in the long run. Turkey is getting further and further away from the European Union. Support programs (that it gets as an EU candidate) are therefore a waste of taxpayers' money. It is time that the EU stops performing like a diplomatic paper tiger towards Ankara. Europe must not be led by the nose round the Turkish election arena.feedback

Recep Tayyip Erdogan

We will teach them international diplomacy. Holland! If you are sacrificing Turkish-Dutch relations for the sake of the elections on Wednesday, you will pay a price. The West has clearly shown its true face in the last couple of days. What we have seen... is a clear manifestations of Islamophobia. I have said that I had thought that Nazism was over, but that I was wrong. Nazism is alive in the West.feedback

Andre Krouwel

Rutte is a key player in this because he is prime minister. We are the ones who really protect your interests, we are the ones who go down into the trenches to defend the Netherlands. The election is still wide open. What the right-wing parties are now doing is jumping on this theme from Turkey to – more than already was the case – emphasize themes of immigration, integration, the migrant problem and the concerns about what identity we still share.feedback

Mevlut Cavusoglu

We have other steps in mind. We've already begun planning them. We will certainly take those steps and more.feedback

Recep Tayyip Erdogan

If you sacrifice Turkish-Dutch relations to the elections on Wednesday, then you will pay the price. What took place in the Netherlands was the trampling of diplomacy, international law, practice, decency. Is there a peep coming out of Europe? No. Why? Because they won't bite one another. They are all the same. The Netherlands did not behave like a European Union member state governed by the rule of law, but like a banana republic.feedback

Thomas De Maiziere

Anyone who insults Germany or its constitutional order and derides it in a malicious way is liable to prosecution. That, at least, would be a limit.feedback

Mark Rutte

I've never experienced this before, but we want to be the more prudent party. If they escalate we will have to respond, but we will do everything in our power to de-escalate.feedback

Mevlut Cavusoglu

Unfortunately Europe and several countries in Europe, the Netherlands being in the first place, they are reminiscent of the Europe of World War II. The same racism, Islamophobia, xenophobia, anti-Semitism, we see all the crimes against humanity in today's politics. What are you going to do? Are you going to kill them, burn them or what?feedback

Binali Yildirim

There will be a stronger reprisal against the unacceptable treatment toward Turkey and ministers who have diplomatic immunity.feedback

Recep Tayyip Erdogan

You can stop our foreign minister's plane all you want, let's see how your (diplomatic) planes will come to Turkey from now on.feedback

Fatma Betul Sayan Kaya

The whole world must take action against this fascist practice! Such a treatment against a woman minister cannot be accepted.feedback

Recep Tayyip Erdogan

You can stop our foreign minister's plane all you want, let's see how your planes will come to Turkey from now on.feedback

Mevlut Cavusoglu

We will give them the response they deserve.feedback

Fatma Betul Sayan Kaya

There is no such international practice. I don't accept that decision, I reject it and I won't return to Germany.feedback

Mevlut Cavusoglu

So they cancelled it due to security concerns, what, so is the minister a terrorist?feedback

Ahmed Aboutaleb

She was called an unwanted foreigner by the government and the rules say you send someone back to the country she came from.feedback

Mark Rutte

I understand they are angry but this is of course way out of line. We will do everything to keep the relations with Turkey as good as possible, as strong as possible.feedback

Binali Yildirim

There will be a stronger reprisal against the unacceptable treatment toward Turkey and ministers who have diplomatic immunity. Our so-called European friends who speak of democracy, freedom of expression and human rights have failed their class. They are banning our ministers and lawmakers who were going there to meet our citizens living abroad, they are creating obstacles. Hey Europe, please don't meddle in Turkey's internal affairs and politics and don't take a side.feedback

Omer Celik

The Netherlands' decision to cancel the flight permit of our foreign minister is not befitting of friendship. This decision does not suit our alliance and our friendship that has spanned centuries. If racist Geert Wilders were in power in the Netherlands, he'd make such a decision.feedback

Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu

Those who defend democracy would not do such things. You'll call yourself a democrat and then not permit the flight of a minister of the Turkish Republic?feedback

Mevlut Cavusoglu

So they cancelled it due to security concerns, what, so is the minister a terrorist? We will give them the response they deserve.feedback

Binali Yildirim

They are banning our ministers and lawmakers who were going there to meet our citizens living abroad, they are creating obstacles. Hey Europe, please don't meddle in Turkey's internal affairs and politics and don't take a side.feedback

Geert Wilders

To all Turks in the Netherlands who agree with Erdogan: Go to Turkey and NEVER come back!!feedback

Mevlut Cavusoglu

The Netherlands should stop this faulty understanding and approach...If they think Turkey will take whatever they do, that Turkey is gone. I told them this, stop this boss-like attitude. If Europe keeps this up, they will lose many places, including Russia and us.feedback

Mark Rutte

Many Dutch people with a Turkish background are authorized to vote in the referendum over the Turkish constitution. The Dutch government does not have any protest against gatherings in our country to inform them about it. But these gatherings may not contribute to tensions in our society and everyone who wants to hold a gathering is obliged to follow instructions of those in authority so that public order and safety can be guaranteed.feedback

Mevlut Cavusoglu

I sent them so they could contribute to your economy ... They're not your captives. If my going will increase tensions, let it be. What damage will my going have on them? I am a foreign minister and I can go wherever I want.feedback

Paul Wilders

He has been a little spoiled, a little spoiled brat. He lived like most young guys do up til his 18th birthday when he left for Israel. After he returned, he went to work for social service, experienced that there was a lot of bureaucracy and from that moment on he decided: I really do want to make difference. He saw a gap politically. He was a fierce opponent of Turkey at that moment and jumped into the gap with quite a lot of success. He has been the person in the Netherlands who stood up in a way quite extreme, providing easy solutions for difficult problems that people where looking for.feedback

Mark Rutte

We find this unacceptable, the public sphere of the Netherlands is not the political campaign area of other countries.feedback

Bert Koenders

We're going to ask for clarification about this. In addition, we are going to engage with the Turkish authorities and the Diyanet [Turkish religious affairs watchdog] organization in Ankara. That's part of our policy of challenging every incident that concerns the 'long arm' with our Turkish counterparts.feedback
