Joachim Herrmann calls for immediate EU accession to Turkey

Monday, September 11th, 2017 | World News

Bavaria's Minister of the Interior, Joachim Herrmann, sees a "red line" after the "travel warning" of Turkey and calls for consequences. The Turkish community also reacts with incomprehension to Ankara's approach.

"This can not be taken seriously by a sensible person," Herrmann told the newspaper of the Spark media group. "As far as the EU accession negotiations are concerned, the red line has long been crossed, and I believe it is absolutely logical to end the EU accession negotiations with Turkey." Federal Chancellor Angela Merkel (CDU) had previously criticized Turkey's actions. The Turkish community in Germany followed the criticism.

Retourkutsche to the Federal Foreign Office
The government in Ankara on Saturday issued a "travel warning for the Federal Republic of Germany". In this, the Turkish Foreign Ministry advises Turks, who live or travel there in Germany, to "caution" – because of "probable xenophobia and racist treatment, behavior and verbal attacks". The move will be seen as a return coach for the tightening of the travel notes of the German Foreign Office for Turkey last week.

  The declaration of Ankara is above all symbolic. In Germany there is a clear difference between travel advice and travel warning. An explicit warning issued by the Federal Foreign Office, for example, facilitates the cancellation of holiday trips booked to the affected country. In Germany, Greens and Left had demanded an official travel warning for Turkey on Sunday.

Herrmann calls for EU accession aid to be stopped
Bavaria's Minister of the Interior Herrmann saw no reason for EU accession aid to the country. "These senseless payments must be stopped – as soon as possible."

 "This travel warning is ridiculous," said the president of the Turkish community in Germany, Gökay Sofuoglu, the "Nordwest-Zeitung". "It would be important to me that the Turkish government can stay out of the Bundestag election campaign."

CDU parliamentary party Kauder wants to continue to negotiate
The chairman of the parliamentary group of CDU and CSU in the Bundestag, Volker Kauder, argued that the discussion thread should not be aborted. "I would now like to talk with Turkey about human rights, religious freedom, the rule of law," said Kauder of the ARD. If President Recep Tayyip Erdogan refused, he would strike the door. Kauder criticized SPD chancellor candidate Martin Schulz for his move to break off the negotiations on accession. Germany stands largely isolated in the EU.

Relations between the governments of Germany and Turkey have been straining for months. Among other things, the reason for this is the imprisonment of German citizens in Turkey for political reasons. The Federal Government calls for their release. Turkey demands the extradition of terror suspects from Germany. In view of the mass arrests of Gülen supporters and other government critics after the coup attempt, numerous Turks fled abroad, including those that the authorities are seeking.

Federal Minister of the Interior Thomas de Maizière told the "Rhein-Zeitung", since Putschversuch of June 2016 250 persons with a Turkish diplomatic passport and 365 so-called service passport holders had applied asylum application in Germany. The CDU politician therefore invoked figures that were available until the end of August 2017. According to the Federal Office for Migration and Refugees (Bamf), 414 Turkish citizens with diplomatic passports or service passports had submitted an application for asylum in Germany by the beginning of May.
