Turkey: Germany not 'showing enough appreciation' for Turkish efforts on Syrian and refugee crisis - Cavusoglu

Turkey, Ankara
October 26, 2019 at 22:48 GMT +00:00 · Published

Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said that “Germany is not showing enough appreciation for the efforts we've made in resolving the Syrian issue and the refugee crisis,” while speaking at a joint press conference with his German counterpart Heiko Maas in Ankara on Saturday.

"As allies and friends, we would expect from Germany to act in accordance with the spirit of our alliance and to cooperate with us in our fight against terrorism" Cavusoglu said.

The German Foreign Minister said that in order to establish an environment to care for needy people a political solution to the Syrian war is needed. That process could be starting with the constitutional committee he said, thanking his Turkish counterpart for their efforts on this front.

He added saying "I welcome as well that in our discussions it was once again confirmed, as it was laid out in written form in the agreement from Sochi, that there would only be a return of refugees on a voluntary basis, in safety and dignity."

The German Foreign Minister is on trip to Turkey to discuss German Turkish bilateral relations as well as the recent developments of the Syrian crisis.
