Erdogan’s Nazi remarks should stop, says Merkel

Mar 21, 2017 @ 9:41

German Chancellor Angela Merkel remained firm in saying that Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s Nazi comparisons have to stop.

Turkey and Germany had a row after German authorities, over security concerns, took back permission for rallies where Turkish ministers were supposed to speak to expatriates ahead of a referendum on expanding presidential powers.

“My remark that the Nazi comparisons from Turkey must stop still applies. No ifs, no buts,” BBC News, in an article published online on March 20, quoted Merkel as saying at a news conference.

Erdogan earlier accused her of using Nazi measures.

Such remarks were “breaking every taboo, without consideration for the suffering of those who were persecuted and murdered,” Merkel said, according to the article.
