In an interview with DW, European Parliament President Martin Schulz says that no treaty between the EU and Turkey will be possible without sticking to the rules of the Geneva Convention.
Embattled former European Parliament President Martin Schulz has resigned as the head of Germany's Social Democrats. Andrea Nahles has been nominated to take his place, but she still faces a party vote in April.
The European Parliament has passed a resolution denouncing the arrests of people who criticized Turkey's military intervention in Afrin. One MEP told DW that there's "no respect for human rights" in Turkey.
Leaders in Brussels hailed the deal on a new German coalition government as good news for Europe. Martin Schulz, formerly president of the European Parliament, said Berlin would "return to an active and leading" EU role.
