Turkey Criticises German’s Indulge Populism, As Merkel Make A Shift On EU Membership


Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan on Monday accused German politicians of indulging in populism after Chancellor Angela Merkel said she would seek an end to Ankara’s European Union membership talks.

Erdogan, however, said that he hoped strained relations would improve.

“We hope that the problematic atmosphere that made Turkish-German relations the victim of this narrow political horizon will end,’’ Erdogan’s spokesperson, Ibrahim Kalin, tweeted.

Merkel made her comments, which signalled an apparent change in her stance on Turkey’s EU accession bid during a televised debate on Sunday ahead of Germany’s Sept. 24 national election.
