Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has created a controversy by accusing German Chancellor Angela Merkel of using Nazi methods. What do Turks in Germany think about the comparison?
The German Federation of Journalists and Amnesty International have announced they will hold a joint rally in Berlin to protest Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan's state visit this month.
The Turkish president's hopes of addressing the German-Turkish community are closer to becoming reality. His upcoming state visit was described as a "betrayal" by journalist Deniz Yücel, who was imprisoned in Turkey.
As Turkey seeks to mend ties with its allies in Europe, German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas is making his first visit to the country. Ankara will likely use his visit as a chance to score points with Berlin.
Germany is worried about Turkey’s economic stability but not enough to offer financial aid. Yet German support could be just the tool to keep Recep Tayyip Erdogan from turning his back on the EU, writes DW’s Seda Serdar.
