DEBKAfile was founded by a team of journalists in June 2000 as an independent Internet Web site, providing an intelligence and security news service. March 13, 2017, 12:52 PM (IDT)

European governments are lining up against Turkey’s attempt to hold rallies in their countries for drumming up votes in a referendum on expanded Turkish presidential powers. After German and Dutch officials reproved Tayyip Erdogan for his inflammatory insults, Denmark’s Prime Minister Lars Lokke Rasmussen postponed a meeting with this Turkish counterpart over concern that “democratic principles were under great pressure in Turkey.”
Austria, like Germany and the Netherlands, cancelled rallies of Turkish nationals in support of the president. A pro-Erdogan rally on Sunday in Stockholm was cancelled, It was to have been attended by the Turkish agriculture minister.

Our unique angle on these subjects – and strong intelligence dimension – has earned DEBKAfile a global reputation and a steady readership – which skyrockets in times of crisis.
