In an important lead article, Turkish newspaper Hurriyet cites President Erdoğan proclaiming that a German coterie is hatching nefarious plots against Turkey, particularly with a recent ‘genocide’ bill.
President Erdoğan is talking to the world’s media from a platform in Nairobi on his African tour.
The article is well worth reading. Erdoğan gives detailed responses to a number of highly charged questions.
Reflecting on this latest development in relations between Turkey and Germany, it will be interesting to see if the number of refugees arriving in Europe, especially Germany, actually falls in 2016 or indeed ahead the federal election in October 2017.
Surely, it that Germany’s policies on refugees and immigrants will backfire and cause a popular backlash?
