Turkey may review its political ties and a refugee deal with the European Union after an April referendum on a new presidential system, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said.
“We could maintain our economic relations but from now on, we may have the need to review ties at the political and administrative level,” Erdogan, 63, said in an interview with CNN-Turk television late Thursday. The president said he’ll use terms like “fascist” or “Nazi” to criticize Europe for as long as “they keep calling me a dictator,” and described as unacceptable some EU members’ defense of the Netherlands after it denied entry to Turkish ministers seeking to campaign ahead of the poll.
He also said Turkey would continue to welcome foreign investors even if it reconsiders its political relations with the bloc.
