Merkel vows support to Turkey’s economy
BERLIN - Anadolu Agency
Merkel also dismissed criticism by German opposition parties on President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan’s planned visit to Berlin on Sept. 28-29.
“We cannot always think of the world in black and white terms. That is not the reality,” she said.
Intensified talks between Berlin and Ankara are important to overcome current problems, she added.
Meanwhile, German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas paid a visit to Turkey on Sept. 5-6 for talks with Erdoğan and his Turkish counterpart Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu.
Maas and Çavuşoğlu attended a ceremony to mark the 150th anniversary of the German School of Istanbul.
“We have been talking about deepening Turkish-German relations through cooperation,” Maas said at the ceremony.
