At one point the two men were shouting at each other across the parliamentary chamber, with Wilders telling Rutte to behave himself, the Telegraaf reported.
‘Behave yourself, man,’ Rutte answered. ‘You cannot call the Turkish prime minister a monkey’.
Rutte was referring to an incident last week in which a PVV MP described Recep Tavvip Erdogan as an ‘Islamic monkey’.
