turk-protestTurkey is “completely detached from reality” in calling the Dutch fascists, European Council President Donald Tusk has said.

As súas declaracións fanse entre unha liña entre a Turquía e as nacións europeas durante a campaña por un referendo turco.

O presidente turco Recep Tayyip Erdogan ten accused the Dutch government of being “Nazi remnants”.

Estaba enfurecido cando un ministro foi impedido de dirixirse a unha reunión de Rotterdam, provocando enfrontamentos coa policía.

Mr Erdogan’s rhetoric intensified when acusou aos holandeses of carrying out the Srebrenica massacre in Bosnia in 1995. The killings of Muslim men and boys was carried out by Bosnian Serb forces and the remarks were condemned by the Dutch prime minister as a “vile falsification”.

Nas súas declaracións ao Parlamento Europeo on Wednesday Mr Tusk said the Netherlands was “a place of freedom and democracy. And for sure Rotterdam,” he said.

“The city of Erasmus, brutally destroyed by the Nazis, which today has a mayor born in Morocco,” he added.

“If anyone sees fascism in Rotterdam, they are completely detached from reality.”

Germany and Austria have also acted to stop Turkish rallies aimed at stirring support for a “yes” vote in a 16 April referendum on giving President Erdogan greater powers.

Mr Tusk’s remarks were applauded by MEPs.

European Commission chief Jean-Claude Juncker said he was “scandalised” by President Erdogan’s remarks, which he said “drives Turkey further away from the European Union”.

O ano pasado, o Parlamento Europeo called for a suspension of Turkey’s EU membership talks, and those calls seem set to grow louder, says the BBC’s Mark Lowen in Istanbul.

Alemaña - accused last week by Mr Erdogan of “Nazi practices” – has now raised the prospect of a complete entry ban on Turkish politicians.

Peter Altmaier, chief of staff for Chancellor Angela Merkel, said such a ban would be permitted under international law but would be a “last resort. But we reserve the right to do that”.

O pequeno estado occidental alemán de Sarre mudouse o martes para prohibir a todos os políticos estranxeiros facer campaña no estado.
