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.

The world is fucked up when a country gets pissed because they aren't allowed to stir up trouble in yours. Why would Turkish officials need or want to campaign in Holland?

are we there yet's picture

One of the reasons, is Turkey is a police state and all political campaigning in Turkey is dangerous. It is not safe to say political things in Turkey. So the Dutch are a useful platform. Plus it allows Turkey to feel powerful in a place close to Brussels.

Europeans are being invaded and most are too stupid to realize it.  Best to send troops to the borders and keep them back.  Any that cross the border should be shot on sight.   Deport all the invaders that have made it through over the past years.  Put them in shipping containers and drop them off in Turkey.

Told you Keyser ain't fucking around.

Keyser had a gang of Turkish protestors pop up with Turkish flags, and those Europeckerwoods still thought he was playing.  Talking that old British East India Company ass bullshit, puffing their chests out refusing to apologize.


In a year or two, maybe Pope Francis can convince the Catholics to vacate their homes for the migrants.

Turkey just open the flood gates and let the refuges go to the EU.

The population of the EU is in favor of having massive immigration; the EU is against us building the wall in the Mexican border. Sweden women like the globalists open gates and they are very accommodating.

these so-called refugees are armies and should be treated as such...the smart nations of europe - and there are none - would create a wall of bullets and bombs and kill every single "refugee" who came across the borders....i would create a river of blood up to erdogan's ass....he is invading europe and these stupid fuck snowflakes of europe have no fucking clue what is going on. europe is completely and totally finished....and good riddance. now a horde of ignorant muslims can take over and do to europe what they have done to turkey and the middle east, africa and wherever else they have spread their heathen crap.

Trump should use this situation to do another EO that bans all refugees for 10 years. 

Make a deal with Somalia to accept all of the "refugees" currently here... pay Somalia $500 for each, include the Mexican deportees to save some time and money.  Make the Obamas co-Ambassadors to Somalia to watch over their children, then revoke their passports.

Escalation on all sides is the only thing that's going to bring about a definitive and durable solution! 2 million more "refugees" might just tip the balance. So yeah, I'm not unhappy about this development.

We need to cut our loses with Europe.  Plain and simple, they are their own mess, their own failure, we should simply state: your monkey and your circus.

Interesting how Merkel cancelled a visit due to the snow, she could be assured a cold reception from those who blame the migrant crisis fairly upon her.

It would be an idea for Italy to seize the billions of dollars Erdogan has stolen from Turkey & made by illegally trading oil from ISIS.  The EU could recover 3 billion of these assets on the grounds that Turkey has not kept its part of the bargain.

Seal team six needs to make a U turn and head to Turkey and get this guy. If he turns 2 million head choppers loose europe will be Lost.

Europe is lost, London is lost, France is worse.

All that is left is for the left to admit that they failed.

What most Americans don't realize is that all the notions you have of Europe is MSM images in your mind, these images do not exist but in the movies and media, go to the Eiffel tower and it is blocked off by bullet proof glass, go to washington DC and you see the barricades and the metal fencing, these images are in your imagination only.

There is no Juan Valdez with a donkey and coffee in Mexico, their are narco terrorists who will slit your throat as soon as look at you.

In Sweeden there isn't chalets and swiss chocolate and blonde girls on the streets, there is empty streets at dusk filled with crime.

The globalists exported their McDonalds, their Starbucks, their Mac Royale and also their special brand of poverty.

Europe was lost two years ago.

We should cut pur loses and not send any military technology as it will be used against us.

The snowflakes should read this. In my many travels I find what you writ true..Hell..drive around a major American city outside the bubble area

Ride across America and you see the smae chain of restraunts, Chilis, Buffalo Wild wings, and the other corporate peddlers.  7-11, walmart, staples, starbucks,

Anyone who has been to NYC looks around and asks: wtf?  What is this mess?  How is it different than any other large city?  

Must be the artwork at hard rock cafe

There was this place Dicks Last Resort in San Diego and some enterprising corporate f0cks ruined it






Again this is nostalgia for people looking for some sort of meaning and not knowing the meaning of meaning, I was watching george Carlin rip apart consumerism and laughing.   Want to eat at exclusive ebbit? PICK A LOCATION!

The Europe that was burn't into your retina in saving private ryan is gone!

The elites and corporate shills destripoyed that along with the borders and the citizens got debt in their names in return, the 1% got 99% and the populace got the marketing.  

Even the superbowl is some appeal to history and allot of the players couldn't share a bench with the guys who invented that game.

But we must make football more appealing.. export it to the UK

So we tax the cities to build the stadiums and the owners get rich and the peasants get the false history

Have fun!

Exactly most have lost at least one relative to NATO(US) bombs, and growing up with ISIS(US) crazies cutting off mums head, does tend to lead to insanity.

Now this looks like the perfect trigger for an actual shooting war in Europe.  Turkey has threatened European sovereignty with and invasion force of two million muslim and African savages.  Come on Europe, call him on it and then curb-stomp Turkey.  I know that you have it in you.

Poland and Turkey are the future

Old Europe is only in the film archives, sorry but true

Old Europe needs to make peace after they surrendered their autonomy decades ago.

A country, a culture, for an empty promise of corporate homogoneous items, thanks for the pollution~ the packaging I cannot open.

Pay close attention: The Netherlands didn't eject diplomats, they simply denied visas to Turkish politicians who wanted to visit in order to hold jihadist rallies, it was not a government-to-government issue. Turkey has escalated it because they are trying to start WWIII leading to a Pan-European caliphate.

.50 caliber machine guns in strategic locations helps keep the moslem refugees from misbehaving.

Put them on planes, boats, trains, trucks, or meat wagons; but send ALL of them to their country of origin.

Send the US military industrial complex, courtesy of the establishment Bush, Clinton, and Obama war criminals, the bill.

Merkel invited them to Europe

Time magazine gave her person of the year

Germany and France have the largest Muslim populations among European Union member countries. As of 2010, there were 4.8 million Muslims in Germany (5.8% of the country's population) and 4.7 million Muslims in France (7.5%).Jul 19, 2016

Merkel is a complete idiot and sociopath:
Germans Build Anti-Arab Fence for Arabs


This Communist creature is dangerous to Europe.
Merkel is on the same trip as Hitler,an out-of-control leader who no one will dare contradict.
Erdogan must send the 2 million refugees to Europe so that the Germans / Europeans finally wake up and send their fascist governments to jail.
