DW talks to German parliamentarian Andreas Nick about current German-Turkish relations
Turkish forces will target Kurdish forces in northeastern Syria and possibly Iraq, Turkey's Recep Tayyip Erdogan has said. The threat comes as military and rebel allies captured the Syrian Kurdish enclave of Afrin.
Recep Tayyip Erdogan has drawn criticism for asking a weeping girl on stage at a party event whether she wanted to be a martyr. The Turkish president is being accused of exploiting children for propaganda purposes.
Recep Tayyip Erdogan and US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson kept mum after meeting at the presidential palace in Ankara. The talk between the top US diplomat and Turkey's president was said to address regional tension.
Turkish forces and Free Syrian Army fighters reportedly met little resistance upon entering Afrin. A local official has warned that Kurdish forces would start waging guerrilla warfare in the surrounding region.
