Turkish sanctions only apply to Dutch leadership : Ankara’s Minister for EU Affairs

Turkey's Minister of European Union Affairs, Omer Celik, has said that individuals who are not linked to the Netherlands’ government agencies will not be affected by the sanctions imposed by Ankara.

"The Turkish and Dutch peoples have long-standing friendly ties and very close cooperation in business. However, the Dutch government is responsible for the wrong things that have happened. That is why the sanctions that have been imposed and possible future sanctions concern only the country’s leadership," he told TASS on Thursday.

The minister recalled that Ankara is not allowing planes carrying Dutch diplomats, but civilian and tourist fights have not been affected.
