Turks living in Germany are among the biggest supporters of conservative Islamic Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan. Many refuse to believe he could be responsible for the political crisis in their homeland.
A visit to Cologne, home to a significant number of Turks, was the final stop in the Turkish leader's three-day trip. Hundreds of people, including many from the Kurdish community, came out to the streets.
Recep Tayyip Erdogan has arrived in Germany for a three-day state visit. Several demos are planned around the capital, Berlin, as the Turkish president prepares for a state banquet and a mosque opening in Cologne.
After years of strained ties, Erdogan has said he wants to reset relations with Berlin during a pomp and circumstance-filled visit to Germany. But German and Turkish politicians aren't convinced it will lead to a change.
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.
