'THEY'LL PAY THE PRICE' Turkish president Erdogan brands Netherlands a 'BANANA REPUBLIC'

TURKISH president Recep Tayyip Erdogan has accused the Netherlands of acting like "banana republic" in a furious tirade.

The two countries are locked in a tense diplomatic row – and his comments are only likely to crank up tensions further.

The Netherlands yesterday blocked two of Erdogan's ministers from addressing Turkish expats in Rotterdam.

Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu and Family Minister Fatma Betul Sayan Kayahad hoped to speak at a pro-Erdogan rally.

But the ministers were not allowed into the country and the event was cancelled, with officials citing security fears.

And speaking this afternoon, Erdogan warned the Netherlands will "pay the price" for the dispute.
