Turkey halts all high-level talks with Dutch officials as Erdogan imposes sanctions in escalating diplomatic crisis

In the latest escalation of a diplomatic spat that erupted at the weekend between Ankara and Amsterdam, Turkish officials said all meetings with their Dutch counterparts would be cancelled.
