Turkey has sealed off diplomatic missions of Netherlands, according to AFP agency referring to the source.

Turkish NTV channel reports that entrance and exit of Dutch Consulate General building in Istanbul was closed.



According to media, the access to Dutch embassy in Ankara was also restricted.

Turkish foreign ministry called for Dutch ambassador who is on leave abroad not to come back for a while, according to Anadolu agency.

As it was reported earlier, Netherlands withdrew landing permission for the plane with Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu on board flying in for a campaign rally. Beyond that, Turkey's family minister reported on Twitter he was not being allowed to enter Turkish consulate in Rotterdam. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan reacted pretty quickly, describing the move as a measure by “Nazi remnants and fascists”.

“How will your country’s flights come here now after not granting permission to our foreign minister?” Erdogan stressed.
