AMMAN — Austria's chancellor, Christian Kern, said on Monday he would attempt to ban Turkish ministers from campaigning in Austria for a referendum in Turkey to expand Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan's powers after the Netherlands hindered a Turkish minister from speaking there.

When asked what Austria's government would do should a Turkish minister try to drum up support among Austria's Turks for the April 16 vote, Kern told broadcaster ORF "we would try to prohibit this due to reasons of public security."
