Erdogan angers Dutch with Srebrenica jibe

Erdogan angers Dutch with Srebrenica jibeTurkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan prompted a fresh outcry in The Netherlands on Tuesday with a jibe about the Srebrenica massacre, warning of retaliation in a spiralling diplomatic crisis. Keeping an uncompromising tone in a tumultuous dispute that risks wrecking the entire Ankara-Brussels relationship, Erdogan said a ‘yes’ vote in a April 16 referendum on expanding his powers would be the best response to Turkey’s “enemies”. Ankara had a day earlier announced it was suspending high-level relations after The Netherlands prevented two Turkish ministers from holding rallies to woo expatriate support ahead of the referendum.
