Turkish-German Relations Discussed

Ankara, Turkey Prime Minister Binali Yildirim held via telephone a conversation with German Chancellor Angela Merkel on the two countries’ relations.

Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim said he and German Chancellor Angela Merkel discussed the recent rally ban crisis between the two countries in a phone call on Saturday.

“The foreign ministers of two countries will meet next week to clarify this issue,” he added.

On Thursday, the municipality of Gaggenau in southwest Germany revoked its permission for Turkish Justice Minister Bekir Bozdag’s meeting, citing concerns about overcrowding. This prompted Bozdag to cancel his planned visit to Germany altogether.
