BRUSSELS - The European Commission on Monday called on Turkey to refrain from excessive statements and actions that could fuel a diplomatic row over Turkish politicians seeking to hold rallies in EU countries to promote a constitutional referendum.

"It is essential to avoid further escalation and find ways to calm down the situation," a Commission spokesman told a regular briefing.
