Turkey appoints ambassador to Netherlands in effort to normalize ties

Turkey and the Netherlands on Friday appointed ambassadors to each other, as part of an agreement to normalize their relations, Turkey’s Foreign Ministry said, Reuters reported.

The two governments fell out over the Netherlands’ decision to bar Turkish officials from campaigning among the Turkish diaspora before Turkey’s April 2017 constitutional referendum, when the Netherlands was holding its own elections.

Turkey has been on a push to improve relations with European countries amid its worsening ties with the United States.
