Erdogan tells Turks: Have 5 kids in Europe

Because you are the future of Europe. "That will be the best response to the injustices against you", Erdogan said in the city of Eskisehir on Friday, according to AP.

The factsheet came in the midst of diplomatic spats between Turkey and some European Union member states, which squabbled over Turkish ministers wooing support from expatriates in Europe for constitutional reforms granting greater powers to President Recep Tayyip Erdogan. Drive the best cars.

"Have five children, not three". And that's exactly why Erdoğan encouraged it.

Some even believe there is a link to Berlin's reported decision to ban symbols used by Kurdish political and military groups, including the flag of YPG militia in Syria as well as a portrait of an outlawed Kurdish party leader.

Meanwhile, Luxembourg Foreign Minister Jean Asselborn said in a recent interview that there was now no helpful reason that would bring the European Union and Turkey together, due to Ankara's verbal attacks and the way that the rule of law and order in Turkey had been trampled on following the July attempted coup. And indeed, Erdoğan's main opposition, the Republican People's Party, has backed his recent denunciations of Europe.

Turkey has been defiant to host the rallies in Germany as the country is home to over a million Turks who are eligible to vote in the referendum.

"Against who? My Turkish brother citizens in Germany and brother ministers" who went to the country to hold campaign rallies for a "yes" vote in next month's referendum.

With almost 95 percent of Wednesday's votes counted, Dutch Prime Minister Rutte appears set for a third term as his center-right People's Party for Freedom and Democracy Party (VVD) got the largest share of seats in parliament, 33 out of 150, down from 41 in the 2012 polls.

Great! Thanks to heavy PVV- pressure a few days before the Dutch elections our government did NOT allow the Turkish minister to land here! "Not just with billions of European Euros for the care of refugees in Turkey, but also with ignoble silence about his trampling of democracy and human rights".

The diplomatic escalation threatens a deal Ankara and Brussels made a year ago meant to slow down the flow of immigrants from Turkey into Europe.

Should relations continue to sour between the two, the agreement could evaporate, and potentially contribute to a huge disruption in economic ties.
