Turkey's Top Diplomat Warns of Religious Wars in Europe
Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu is warning of “religious wars” coming to Europe in response to the re-election of Mark Rutte as Dutch Prime Minister.
Cavusoglu said Thursday there is “no difference” between Rutte and the losing right-wing candidate Geert Wilders, whom Cavusoglu referred to as a “fascist.”
"Where are you going, where are you taking Europe? You have begun to disintegrate Europe and take Europe to the cliff. Soon religious wars will begin in Europe," Cavusoglu said.
Wilders’s anti-Islam Party for Freedom came in a distant second to Rutte’s People’s Party for Freedom and Democracy (VVD) with 20 seats, compared to 33.
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Thursday during a speech that Rutte had lost Turkey as a friend, even though he beat out Wilders.
