Turkish officials have been campaigning among emigre Turks in Germany and the Netherlands to promote the referendum.

"Make not three, but five children", he said.

But Erdogan said he would sign it immediately.

Europe has become increasingly Islamophobic and xenophobic, with racist sentiments and attacks against Muslims and non-white refugees, migrants and even naturalised citizens increasing at an alarming rate.

"If you want, we could open the way for 15,000 refugees that we don't send each month and blow the mind [of Europe]", Soylu said, according to Hurriyet Daily News. You are Europe's future.

But millions more people living in western Europe states have Turkish roots.

But Erdogan said there was to be no reconciliation with The Hague.

Ankara also suspended high-level relations with Amsterdam and blocked the Dutch ambassador to Turkey from returning to his post after leaving the country.

Turkish authorities have arrested more than 41,000 people and fired or suspended 100,000 since July, many of them teachers, police, magistrates or journalists.

"We have made it very clear from the very outset that we can and will take necessary measures should Turkey fail to comply with German legal system", the foreign minister said.

The comments follow a European Court of Human Rights ruling that businesses could ban their employees from wearing religious symbols including Islamic headscarves in certain circumstances.

A day after accusing the European Union of starting a "crusade" against Islam by the ruling, he said the court should "ban the kippa ban too" - although in theory the Jewish skullcap should be included in the decision which covers all religious symbols.

There is now no sense for Turkey to continue implementing an agreement with the European Union (EU) on refugees, Turkish Minister for EU Affairs Omer Celik told TASS on Thursday.

The deal, which was reached on March 18 previous year, substantially reduced the flow of migrants to the EU which had peaked in 2015, and was exploited by the European far right. This comprehensive document comprises provisions on financial assistance to Ankara for implementing refugee projects, the exchange of illegals for legal migrants, visa liberalization, readmission and the acceleration of the negotiations on Turkey's admission to the EU.
