The Minister of foreign Affairs of Germany, Sigmar Gabriel, believes that President Recep Tayyip Erdogan uses Germany as an external enemy to distract their citizens from domestic problems.

«President Tayyip Erdogan uses Germany as an external enemy to hide their internal disagreements,» said Gabriel in an interview with the newspaper Nordwest-Zeitung.

He noted that «in this game is not worth it to participate.»

The relationship between the EU and Turkey deteriorated after the attempted armed coup in the country. The European Union has criticized the reaction of the Turkish authorities, mass arrests and other measures Ankara has suspended preparations for the opening of new chapters of the negotiation file on the accession of Turkey to the European Union.

Especially the strained relations of Turkey with Austria, which insists on the suspension of talks on the country’s accession to the organization, and with Germany, declared the revision of the economic policy of Ankara, credit and investment programs because of the arrest of human rights defenders in Turkey.
