A large crowd of pro-Turkish demonstrators gathered outside the Turkish Consulate in Rotterdam on Saturday evening with flags, in a peaceful protest following the acrimonious words between both governments.
The crowd was standing near the consulate’s entrance, with Rotterdam police putting up railings to keep anyone from getting too close.
The protesters were waving Turkish flags, chanting slogans as the Dutch security forces stood guard.
The protest came after the Dutch government barred the Turkish foreign minister from landing in the Netherlands to address a rally in support of a Turkish referendum to extend the powers of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.
