Erdogan urges Turkish diaspora to have more children

Erdogan accuses Europe of discriminating against Turks

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan called on all Turkish expats residing in Europe to have more children in response to the “segregation” they are facing across the continent. “Educate your children in the best schools, ensure your families live in the best locations, drive the best cars, live in the best houses and have 5 children, not just three”, the Turkish President urged Turkish migrants during his address at a gathering in the city of Eskisehir, south of Constantinople. “That is the best answer to the disrespect and hostility you are facing”, he went on to say. It is estimated that 2.5 million Turks living in Europe are eligible to take part in the April 16 referendum in Turkey which is related to increasing executive power to the President. Relations bewteen Turkey and the EU have been strained following a row between Turkey and the Netherlands and other EU countries over the banning of Turkish politicians to hold rallies in EU nations for the referendum.
