Erdogan Warns Europeans “will not walk safely on the streets”

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan

The Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said on Wednesday that Europeans across the world “will not walk safely” if they maintain their current attitude towards Turkey.

“If you [Europe] continue to behave like this, tomorrow in no part of the world, no European, no Westerner will be able to take steps on the street safely and peacefully,” Erdogan said during a speech in Ankara, Turkey.

The warning was another episode in a series of escalated tensions between Turkey and number of European countries over their refusal to allow the Turkish government officials to campaign for the Turkish referendum in their countries.

Turkish politicians have been planning to gather support for the Turkish constitutional referendum to be held on April 16; in addition to addressing the Turkish diaspora in European countries and harness more votes in support for the Turkish constitutional referendum.

In the meantime, European countries, including the Netherlands, Austria, Switzerland and Germany, are strictly rejecting bringing Turkish campaigns to their countries for security reasons.
