European Council President Donald Tusk has said that Turkey’s accusations of fascism in the Netherlands are “completely detached from reality”.

A diplomatic row between Turkey and the Netherlands blew up after the Netherlands cancelled rallies by led by Turkish politicians in Rotterdam. They were intended to raise support for the referendum in Turkey in April, on radically amending the Turkish constitution. If voted in, the president would be granted wide-ranging powers.

Rotterdam, the city of Erasmus, totally destroyed by the Nazis, which now has a mayor born in Morocco: If any anyone sees fascism in Rotterdam they are completely detached from reality,” Tusk told a plenary session of the European Parliament.

European Commission President Jean Claude Juncker, told parliament he was “scandalised” by the Turkish comments, saying they drove Turkey further away from joining the European Union.
