Turkey Says "Migrant Deal Has Ended", May Unleash Millions Of Refugees

Tyler Durden's picture

As we noted moments ago, the tit-for-tat aggression resumed its escalation between Turkey and the Netherlands, with Turkish Deputy Prime Minister Numan Kurtulmus exclaiming from Ankara that "Europe's politicians are under fascist, neo-nazi influence" and in response, Turkey will suspend all high-level diplomatic meetings and cancel all flight permissions for Dutch politicians.

As part of its furious response, Turkey said it would impose various travel sanctions on Dutch diplomats such as halting all high-level political discussions with the Netherlands in the wake of the Dutch government's decision to bar two cabinet ministers from campaigning in the country. Kurtulmus said during a news conference following a weekly cabinet meeting that Ankara also is closing its air space to Dutch diplomats until the Netherlands meets Turkish requests, according to the AP.

Kurtulmus also says the Dutch ambassador to Turkey, who was traveling when the diplomatic row started, won't be allowed to return, and said that Turkey's government plans to advise parliament to withdraw from a Dutch-Turkish friendship group.

It was unclear what the sudden Turkish escalation means for economic ties between the two nations: as a reminder,  Dutch direct investment in Turkey amounts to $22 billion, making the Netherlands the biggest source of foreign investment with a share of 16%.  Furthermore, Turkish exports to the Netherlands totalled $3.6 billion in 2016, making it the tenth largest market for Turkish goods, according to the Turkish Statistical Institute. Turkey imported $3 billion worth of Dutch goods in 2016. Should the diplomatic spat lead to a collapse in trade relations, a Turkey recession is all but assured.

Kurtulmus said the political sanctions will apply until the Netherlands takes steps to "redress" its actions. He said: "There is a crisis and a very deep one. We didn't create this crisis or bring to this stage."

However the most troubling development, and one which has the potential to sway the outcome of the Dutch election which will be held in less than two days, is that in the final power play aimed towards Merkel, Kurtulmus exclaimed that since "Europe has not kept its promises on the migrant deal, for us that agreement has ended."

Which means that one year after it collected $3 billion for the migrant deal, Turkey has just voided the agreement, and the next step would be that Turkey is about to flood Europe with refugees currently held inside Turkish borders. And since by some estimates Turkey currently harbors over 2 million potential migrants, Europe's refugee situation is about to get far worse, and as a corollary, support for anti-immigrant political organizations across the continent is about to take another step function higher.

Meaning a lot more christians are going to die or a lot more moslems are going to die?  I think kosovo is a perfect example of why progressives can take their multiculturalism and shove it up their collective asses.  That and South Africa too.

Albright is a Neocon. And Kosovo is the organ havesting capital of Europe. Albright should shut down all of her connections to Kosovo immediately.

It is funny how NATO justified bombing of Yugoslavia by claiming that refugees from Kosovo would destabilize EU, yet when hundreds of thousands of Kosovo Albanians went to Germany to ask for political asylum in 2015/2016 (I guess those few remaining Serbs were to blame) it was all swiped under the carpet.

NATO silence on refugees from Turkey just show you how much of a BS that argument truly was and the extent of NATO abilities, when they can't control it's whole southern flank which is wide open for terrorists and Islamists.

Newsflash EU, Muslim states will never deter Muslim invasion, it's NOT IN THEIR CHARTER, duh

Idiots. Double standards don't work anywhere. The Turks could give a rats ass about anything but the Turks. Your call Europe...

The hotter the temper, the bigger the climbdown.

Remember the Mavi Maramara and the Su-24 incident?

If Wilders wins, the escalation will take on another dimension. A possible surreal black swan dimension.

I can see a strongly worded letter of protest as a result of these provocations from Turkey.

What can Wilders do?

Declare war?  LMAO

The best he can do is to deport all Turks from NL.

Not gonna happen

Erdogan...

I was given the solemn "pinky swear" promise from the Obama/Cameron/Merkel steering committee that if I absorbed all of the refugees for 10 years that the U.S. created in Iraq, Syria, Libya and Yemen that "I" would be rewarded with the oil from ALL of those places along with free access to Western Europe and the U.S. for our collective stable of trained "head chopper"/sleeper cells to be used when they are needed to start the next set of false flags to be blamed of course on Russia!...

NOW I'll just have to send them to those place(s) to "blow shit u"p because I didn't get what I wanted out of Syria AND I'M FUCKING "PISSED"!

God Dammit I'M THE SULTAN!!!

The Dutch hold all the aces in dealing with this backward caliphate. Whether they'll use them is another matter.

LOL. Bring it on, pig. Can't understand why anyone even acknowledges this shitty little third-world dictator and his shitty little third-world country.

Like he hasn't been secretely violating the agreements he made and sending refugees into Europe anyway. And will continue to do so for any reason he pleases, or no reason at all. 

Publicus_Reanimated's picture

See what happens when you let shitty little Third World countries into NATO?  I truly believe the only reason Turkey was allowed to join was so it would not go to war against Greece over Cyprus.

Escapeclaws's picture

What has become of that ugly little neocon wombman Nudelman? She was working with the President of Cyprus just before Trump took office. You can imagine that the Cypriots were kept in the dark about those machinations.

Who (and what) is creating all of these refugees in the first place?  A drought?

rf80412's picture

Drought.  US foreign policy.  The ambition and/or greed of young men.  Explosive population growth in some of the poorest countries in the world.  And yes, Islam.

Europe's refugee crisis has many causes.

Giant Meteor's picture

Meh, that may be, but I say US foreign policy, and I do mean foreign, likely heads the list ...

Bombing the poorest countries in the world, proxy wars, creating massive instability in countrys already on the edge is bound to guarantee MASSIVE blowback, blowback a term invented by the

I'll bet if Assad saw the shitstorm coming on the horizon. he would of opened a few soup kitchens and put those displaced farmers to work, but not allowing the pipeline through pretty much baked a "color revolution" in the cake by the shitstorm importers.

I guess you could call it a brown shitstorm color revolution.

You out of all(AI)bots know who created these refugees!!!!!LOL!!!!!!!!!

A drought of peace.  US Excursions into the middle east have made it difficult to live there, what with the depleted uranium and other weapons contaminating the ground and ground water.

The offer of free cash, no ID needed, just enter the EU and demand full support.

Create any new ID you want, walk in and the cash flows from some nation in the EU.

Using social media rank the nations that offer the most payments, free health care and free housing.

Make sure that any new ID is linked to a nation that cant deport.

Stay for a few years and bring in others on that one new ID.

You can joke about this, but as is commonly the case with immigration, many immigrants form mafias or get integrated into existing mafias. Samuel Laurent has shown how this works in France in his book "Al Qaida en France". Any one with experience fighting organized crime knows that once it takes roots it can never be uprooted. That is the case now. The present mafia has a religious overlay that theologically justifies acts of extreme cruelty.

It is really a pity that all the wise pundits and sages are overlooking this mafia factor and concentrating on ideological issues. The mafia issue is already the most important aspect and the most intractable. To focus, for example, on assimilation is ridiculous. Can you assimilate a mafia? Can you assimilate extortion, drug cartels, organ harvesting, sex traffiking, child pornography, protection rackets, political bribery, etc, etc, etc? Just look at cheery little Kosovo or Albania.

People are airheads and never learn a lesson before it is too late.

It's mafia, folks, Cosa nostra, John Gotti, the Gambino Family, goodfellas, thugs, guys who don't mess around! Get the picture yet? (Hint: mafia, not religion, ok?)

I remember reading long ago that our western societies would degenerate into warring organized crime clans. Looks like we're there now.

Wake up to this issue, anyone who reads this!

A_Huxley's picture

The other issue is older holiday camps, hotels are getting 100% occupancy 24/7.

Thats a powerful political lobby in the EU to fill property and be paid for the service.

This might be best for the migrants. I hear the Turks are just killing them like they did the Armenians.

Publicus_Reanimated's picture

The dead Armenians were Christians.  No, Erdogan is not going to commit whatever the religious equivalent of genocide is against Muslims.

Big Twinkie's picture

Oh NO! What will the Dutch do without access to Turkish Taffy?

Herdee's picture

First step is Turkey will bring in huge ships and start dumping off the migrants onto the numerous Greek Islands. As long as they are in the EU, the money will get sucked out of Germany and the ECB by the hundreds of billions. You are looking at housing, education, food, welfare, medical, security, you name it, it'll turn out to be Merkel's nightmare.

Greece would be fucked. Merkel will, as usual, do nothing and sit it out and let Orban and friends deal with it. Fuck you Merkel you fucking shit.
I don't get how anyone would think that she is good at anything, let alone leading our country. She is horrible at giving speeches and is basically doing fucking nothing all day, sitting out her entire fucking term. Cunt.

probably because she looks like a boring church-going spinkster who has never done anything wrong in a small-town-mentality  kind of way. She looks like a 'proper' housewife

I honestly can't understand why anyone would vote for that retarded fat shit - she can't even walk properly

Looks like Erdo is going for the full invasion afterall, with refugees as the weapon. The EU leaders think Russia is the problem, meanwhile Erdo is in your face hostile ready to unleash an army of future Lorry drivers. Does anyone over there see the irony? Go Wilders.
