ANKARA, March 11 (Xinhua) -- Entrances of Dutch embassy in Ankara and consulate in Istanbul, along with their residences, are closed off late Saturday due to "security reasons," a Turkish Foreign Ministry official told Xinhua.
The move came after the Dutch police closed a road of Turkish consulate residence in Rotterdam on Saturday after Turkish minister insisted to hold a rally in the country.
Earlier in the day, the Dutch government revoked landing permission for the plane carrying Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu, just hours before his scheduled flight to the Dutch city of Rotterdam.
The minister went with his plan to address the Turkish there to garner their votes in a referendum on Turkey switching to a presidential system, despite a Dutch call to the contrary.
Meanwhile, Turkey's Minister of Family and Social Policies Betul Sayan Kaya is not allowed to enter into Turkish consulate by Dutch police in Rotterdam, local media reported.
