Comparison of the actions of the German authorities with the policy of the Nazis is inappropriate, they cannot be justified. This was stated in Berlin, German Chancellor Angela Merkel.
“Such inappropriate statements, strictly speaking, you cannot seriously comment. They are generally nothing can justify, including by campaigning for a referendum on the introduction of presidential system in Turkey,” she said.
Merkel stressed that, in her personal opinion, such comparisons are “downplay the severity of the crimes committed by the national socialists,” and therefore “themselves disqualifiziert”.
Previously, Germany was banned two statements of the Turkish politicians who had to campaign for the amendment of Turkey’s Constitution. On Sunday , President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has compared such bans with a policy of the Nazis.
