German Chancellor Angela Merkel finds “absurd” the accusations being thrown at her by Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

Erdogan earlier accused her of supporting terrorists during an interview with A Haber TV.

According to an Al Jazeera article published online on March 13, Merkel described the accusations as “clearly absurd.”

“The chancellor has no intention of taking part in a game of provocation,” her spokesman Steffen Seibert said in a statement.

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.

Erdogan earlier compared Germany’s behavior with Nazi-era actions.
