On the same day, Turkish Family and Social Affairs Minister Fatma Betul Sayan Kaya decided to travel to the Netherlands, but was denied entry to the Turkish consulate in Rotterdam and subsequently faced deportation.
Ankara reacted furiously, promising reciprocal actions and sanctions against the Netherlands, while Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan labeled the Dutch authorities' behavior as "Nazism." On Monday, Ankara suspended high-level political contacts with the Netherlands and sent the country a diplomatic note, criticizing the treatment of Cavusoglu. Dutch authorities, in turn, demanded an apology for being compared to Nazis.
On Monday, Ankara halted all high-level political discussions with the Netherlands and barred the Dutch ambassador from returning to Turkey.
Several meetings of Turkish officials with expats have already been canceled in Germany and Switzerland as well as in the Netherlands.
