All quotes by Sigmar Gabriel on Turkey

I can't see how we as the German government can continue to guarantee corporate investments in Turkey if there is the threat of arbitrary expropriation for political reasons. We need to talk about how we can develop our Hermes guarantee framework and how we deal with investment loans and economic aid.feedback

I think Turkey is right when it warns us and says we should not allow the PKK to carry out propaganda activities in public. The PKK has been banned in this country since the beginning of the 1990's. And rightly so. Not only for what they have done in Turkey, but also because of protection rackets, drugs trafficking and and the arms trade in this country.feedback

We are telling Turkey that we are convinced that such an appearance in Germany is not possible. Our country is an open country, but we do not have the intention to allow that other countries' domestic conflicts be imported into our population. I explained weeks ago to my Turkish colleagues that we don't think that would be a good idea. I also said quite frankly that such an appearance would not be appropriate given the current adversarial situation with Turkey.feedback

Turkey and Germany are going through a troubled period.feedback

We have to respect that Turkey for domestic political reasons cannot approve visits. But then you know the opinion of the German parliament which will now in the very near future make reference to that part of the mandate which says that, if visits aren't possible, the German government will have to look for another location.feedback

The German government is strictly against cancelling the (accession) talks, that would be totally the wrong reaction. Those who would like to win applause at home because they say 'We do not talk to Turkey any more' will not change anything in Turkey.feedback

We must make every effort to persuade Turkey that the path it is on is not the right path, and at the same time keep the channels of communication open.feedback

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
