Amsterdam,March 11 (QNA) – The Netherlands has canceled Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu’s flight permit on grounds of “security” and “public safety”, Dutch Foreign Ministry announced in a statement Saturday.

The announcement came just hours after Cavusoglu said Turkey would impose “severe sanctions” on the Netherlands if attempts were made to cancel his planned meeting in the European country, Anadolu Agency reported.

The Turkish foreign minister was scheduled to address the Turkish community in the Dutch city of Rotterdam later Saturday. A Turkish threat of sanctions if Cavusoglu were denied entry “made a reasonable solution impossible”, Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte said. (QNA)
