ISTANBUL, March 7 (Xinhua) -- Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said Tuesday that he will visit Germany to hold a rally with the Turkish community there despite cancellation of the event by local authorities.

""I am going to meet with our citizens this evening in Hamburg,"" Cavusoglu told top foreign diplomats in Istanbul prior to his departure for Germany, saying ""No one could prevent that.""

The authorities in northern German city of Hamburg on Monday canceled a scheduled meeting of the top Turkish envoy with local Turkish community, citing poor safety standard of the building.

Local authorities in Germany have also prevented other Turkish ministers from lobbying the Turkish diaspora for ""yes"" votes in the April 16 referendum on Turkey switching to a presidential system.

The episode has sparked a burst of outrage from Ankara and further chilled bilateral ties, with President Recep Tayyip Erdogan likening it to Nazi practices and vowing to ""stir up the world"" until he is allowed to speak in Germany.

Some 1.4 million Turks living in Germany can vote in April on whether to grant Erdogan sweeping powers, for which the president has been pushing hard.

Another rally for Cavusoglu on the upcoming plebiscite was banned by Dutch officials last Friday.

The minister told the foreign diplomats that he received a call from the Dutch authorities stating that his visit was feared to help Dutch far-right party leader Geert Wilders to win in elections.

Wilders said on Twitter that he had applied for demonstration in front of the Turkish embassy against any referendum rally by Cavusoglu, according to press reports.

Cavusoglu accused Europe of not preventing the rise of racist parties. ""And today they become the slaves of them,"" he said.


SUVA, March 24 (Xinhua) -- A Chinese national has died while scuba diving in Fiji, officials of China's embassy in Fiji confirmed to Xinhua on Friday.

The victim was on a scuba diving trip in waters near Fiji's tourism hub of Nadi on Wednesday when the incident happened, embassy officials said.

The victim, traveling by herself in Nadi, left out to a small island for a day cruise on Wednesday, where she took a scuba diving trip accompanied by a local dive control specialist, during which a sign of struggle was seen on her face as she could not reply through hand signals, police said.

She was evacuated by helicopter to the nearest hospital, where she was pronounced dead on arrival.

As police investigations continue, the Chinese embassy, which has managed to get in contact with the victim's family members, reminds Chinese tourists to exercise caution while enjoying themselves in the Pacific island country.

INCHEON Derek Dorsett Canucks Jersey , South Korea, Sept. 15 (Xinhua) -- About one year ago,the Chinese Olympic soccer team lost to the Democratic People'sRepublic of Korea 3-0 in the East Asian Games in Tianjin, China,finishing last to disappoint their victory-hungary supporters.

At the Incheon Football Stadium on Monday, the young Chineseteam lost their Asian Games opener in the same score, watching SimHyon-jin, So Kyong-jin and Ri Hyok-chol complete the tally withhalf an hour to go.

Efficiency, accuracy, patience. It seems the Chinese team lackseverything a team needs to win.

Heads down, Chinese footballers left the pitch.

"One goal down too early," said China coach Fu Bo, referring toSim's goal at the 10th minute.

Fu said the Chinese were stunned and dumbfounded by the DPRKoreans' early goal.

With the lead, the DPRK team pulled off brilliant passes infront of the Chinese goal, creating far more chances than theiropponents. The stats showed that the DPRK team led 23-7 in shotswhile Chinese shots were long and from poor angles.

"The DPRK team was very good, especially in speed," said Fu."They deserved the win."

Fu has to look beyond the Asian Games to the the Rio Olympicstwo years away.

"It's a wonderful experience for the young guys to play againsta good team in the world," he said.

Fu had expected his team to fight for a semifinal berth in theAsian Games, but his plan was foiled by "uncertain factors",including a controversial decision by Chinese Super League sideShandong Luneng which refused to let six players leave for theIncheon Games.

Shandong was punished by the Chinese Football Association.

But in Fu's eyes, Shandong's decision was not a major reason forhis team's loss.

"They opened the score early and then our players didn't knowwhat to do," said Fu. "All three goals happened after we mademistakes." Enditem
