The tone is getting hysterical: Dutch PM refutes Erdogan's "falsification of history"

Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte said Tuesday that Turkish remarks on the Srebrenica massacre in the diplomatic row with the Netherlands is "vile falsification of history".

In a speech televised live earlier on Tuesday, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said "we know the Netherlands and the Dutch from the Srebrenica massacre. We know how rotten their character is from their massacre of 8,000 Bosnians there."

"The tone is getting hysterical," said Rutte when interviewed by Dutch media. In his view, the Turkish president "continues to inflate further". "It is a level and lack of style, incredible. We are not going to reduce us to this level. It is really unacceptable. "

On July 11, 1995, the enclave of Srebrenica fell to the Bosnian Serb forces and over 7,000 Bosnian Muslim men and boys were killed. The UN protected "safe haven" proved to be not safe at all and the Dutch battalion Dutchbat was not able to protect the victims, resulting in a national trauma for the Dutch.
