Dutch police refuse Turkish minister's convoy entry - CNN Turk

1 Min Read

ANKARA, March 11 (Reuters) - Dutch police stopped the convoy of Turkey's family minister at the country's border on Saturday, broadcaster CNN Turk said, as she tried to enter the Netherlands after Turkey's foreign minister was barred from flying there.

The convoy of Family Minister Fatma Betul Sayan Kaya, who was in Germany for separate meetings when she decided to head to the Netherlands by land, was told to return to Germany, CNN Turk reported. Broadcaster NTV had a similar report.

However, Dutch TV broadcast footage of the minister in Rotterdam being prevented by police from entering the Turkish consulate.
