Merkel wants to raise economic pressure on Turkey

Sunday, September 17th, 2017 | World News

In Turkey, German citizens are repeatedly arrested. Chancellor Angela Merkel wants to increase the economic pressure on Turkey to achieve the release of this.

"We will have to reduce our economic cooperation with Turkey and put projects under review," she told the "Passauer Neuen Presse".

It is outrageous that a number of German citizens are in prison in Turkey. "We care for the detainees consularly as well as we can, but this is also very difficult in Turkey."

Cem Ă–zdemir, the head of the Green Party, also called for greater economic pressure on Ankara and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan. He pleaded in the "world" to suspend the Hermes guarantees, to deliver no more armaments, and to issue a clear travel warning – "until Erdogan freed the German hostages." The guarantees are intended to protect German export companies from losses caused by missing payments from their foreign business partners.
