Default After Nazi remarks, Turkey says 'we need Germany'

After Nazi remarks, Turkey says 'we need Germany'

Tensions have been running high between Ankara and Berlin recently, culminating in the Turkish premier accusing the Bundesrepublik of using "Nazi measures". But now Ankara is calling on Germany for economic help.
Turkey’s rocky relationship with Germany has been on a rollercoaster of ups and downs in recent years, most recently amid President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s campaign to pass a referendum that will expand his powers.

In the lead up to the referendum - which narrowly passed on April 16th - Turkish officials were blocked from speaking at ‘yes’ campaign rallies in various German cities, with local authorities citing logistical and security reasons. The German federal government insisted that it had “absolutely no influence” in the cancellations, but Erdogan didn’t see it that way.

The Turkish President accused the country of “employing Nazi measures”, to which Chancellor Angela Merkel responded with a threat of banning all campaign events if his taunts persisted.

But now Ankara is singing a different tune.

In an interview with Bild published on Monday, Deputy Prime Minister Mehmet Simsek said that now the referendum is over, things can go back to the way they were before - and even made a plea for financial help.

“I think that the time must come to return to normalcy in our relations,” Simsek said.

Simsek added that at a meeting of G20 finance ministers in Washington last week, there had been discussion of helping Turkey to get back on its feet economically.

“Therefore, we need Germany,” he added.
