Netherlands withdrew landing permission for the plane with Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu on board flying in for a campaign rally, according to AFP agency.

Dutch government says such decision was taken due to threat to public order.

Cavusoglu also announced earlier that Ankara could impose economic and political sanctions against Netherlands if country authorities bar him from flying to Rotterdam.

President Tayyip Erdogan responded by calling his NATO partner a "Nazi remnant", according to Reuters.

It is noteworthy that Turkish politicians were planning to perform at the meetings in a number of European countries. Initially, Turkish Foreign Minister was planning to hold a rally to persuade expatriates to support amendments in Turkish constitution.
