Dutch Police Escort Turkish Minister to German Border After Standoff in Rotterdam
Dutch authorities declared a Turkish cabinet minister an "undesirable alien" and escorted her to the German border on Saturday, after the Turkish official was stopped 30 meters away from the Turkish consulate in the Dutch city of Rotterdam and prevented from entering the building.
Family Minister Fatma Betul Sayan Kaya tweeted late Saturday that police were escorting her back to the German border, after she travelled to Rotterdam by road earlier in the day after the Dutch government barred Turkey's foreign minister from flying there, in a sharp escalation of a dispute between the two NATO allies.
TV video on the NOS network showed the standoff between the ministerial convoy and the Rotterdam police, which was translated between an officer and the minister.
After being told to return with her convoy, Kaya retorted sharply, saying "I will go to the consulate building. That is a building belonging to my country and I am a minister of that country." She continued that "there is no such international practice. I don't accept that decision, I reject it and I won't return to Germany."AND THEN THERE'S THIS:
