 Turkish government bans Dutch envoy

Turkish Deputy Prime Minister Numan Kurtulmus said that Ankara is closing its air space to Dutch diplomats until the Netherlands meets Turkish requests.

"We are not allowing planes carrying Dutch diplomats or envoys from landing in Turkey or using our airspace," Kurtulmus told a news conference after a cabinet meeting.

He also stressed that the Dutch ambassador to Turkey, who was traveling when the diplomatic row started, won't be allowed to return to Ankara.
