Wolfgang Schäuble

Erdogan's rhetoric makes me stunned, . In a short time, it wilfully destroys the integration that has grown over years in Germany. The repair of the damage will take years.feedback

Recep Tayyip Erdogan

Merkel, now you're applying Nazi methods. Against my brothers who live in Germany, and against my ministers and lawmakers who visit there. Would this suit the ethics of politics? Your mission is not to support terrorist organizations, but to extradite them.feedback

Angela Merkel

I don't intend to participate in this race to trade provocations. The insults need to stop. Furthermore, we're looking at the situation afresh every day and are not giving anyone a carte blanche for the future.feedback

Angela Merkel

Germany completely rejects rhetorical and any other comparisons with the National Socialists made by the Turkish president. This rejection is also valid for our allies, such as the Netherlands. These comparisons are completely misguided. They trivialize the suffering. Particularly in the Netherlands that endured so much agony through the National Socialists, it's just completely unacceptable. That's why the Netherlands can count on my complete support and solidarity on this.feedback

Josef Janning

Merkel has a problem. She has been accused of licking Erdogan's feet and being blackmailed by him and being afraid to speak her mind. . . . The problem is that Erdogan can pretend not to need Germany, not to need the E.U. But Merkel cannot pretend to not need Turkey.feedback

Angela Merkel

We want to do everything in order to prevent conflicts emanating from the domestic situation in Turkey from being carried into our coexistence here. Let us continue, wherever possible, to promote and further improve our way of living together. This is a matter close to our hearts.feedback

Binali Yildirim

If you mention a religion in the same sentence as terrorism, then the followers of that religion – in this case two billion people – will be offended. When you use the phrase 'Islamic terrorism,' all Muslims are offended. And at the moment, the Turkish public has a very negative opinion of the United States.feedback

Angela Merkel

There are profound differences of points of view between Germany and Turkey on the state of liberty of the press and opinion in Turkey, on the destiny of many more than a hundred journalists in prison – also the destiny of our compatriot, the journalist Deniz Yücel.feedback

Recep Tayyip Erdogan

Germany, you are not even close to democracy. Your behaviour is no different from the Nazi practices of the past. I'll come tomorrow if I want to, and if you do not let me in, or try to stop me speaking, I'll start an insurrection.feedback

Steffen Seibert

Nazi comparisons are always absurd and out of place, because they only lead to trivialising of the Nazis' crimes against humanity. To our Turkish partners, let us talk openly and critically, but let us remember the special meaning of our close relationship and let cool heads prevail.feedback

Christian Kern

A collective EU ban would make sense so individual countries like Germany don't end up being pressured by Turkey.feedback

Sigmar Gabriel

The situation of Deniz Yucel throws a spotlight on the fact that Germany, and Turkey and the EU and Turkey, have very different ideas about the application of the basic principles of a constitutional democracy and the value of the freedom of the press.feedback

Recep Tayyip Erdogan

There's a legislative branch, executive as well, and the same goes for judiciary. There can't be a question about removing the separation of powers.feedback

Angela Merkel

I have stated that the guilt must be individually identified. And we saw how the Turkish people defended democracy and democratic rule in Turkey. This is exactly why it is important in this critical phase to maintain freedom of expression.feedback

Elmar Brok

Turkey must quickly return to constitutional order. This would apply to the military as well as for Erdogan who currently fulfils a function as president that is not foreseen in the constitution.feedback

Cem Oezdemir

It wasn't our goal to hold this vote now, but the timing is not that important. The Bundestag is doing this because this is also a part of German history. The Ottoman and German empires were essentially brothers in arms.feedback

Angela Merkel

We want that the Kurdish people have their equal place and a good future in Turkey. Of course there are mutual dependencies, which you could also call a necessity to reconcile interests.feedback

Anton Hofreiter

Merkel now has to live with the accusation of bending to Erdogan. She has to live with the accusation that the deal with Turkey is more important than the defense of press freedom.feedback

Thomas De Maiziere

If the terrorists aimed to disturb, destroy or jeopardize cooperation between partners, they achieved the opposite. Germany and Turkey are becoming even closer. Based on what we know from the investigation so far, there are no indications that the attack was explicitly targeting Germans so there cannot be a link with our contribution to the fight against international terrorism.feedback

Martin Schaefer

But I think the relations between Germany and Turkey are so close and so deep… that I am quite confident we will manage again to overcome this not so easy phase of bilateral relations with Turkey.feedback
