Merkel Calls On Turkey To Release Jailed German Citizens

Merkel Calls On Turkey To Release Jailed German Citizens”

The Social Democratic Party (SPD) leader said Merkel had tried to dictate terms for their sole televised debate next week, and accused her of abusing the perks of office by flying to campaign events "at a bargain price".

Neither does a nationalist party that expanded its appeal with rhetoric highly critical of Merkel's welcoming attitude toward migrants appear poised to produce change at the top.

"There are many areas where people have the feeling that Merkel is lost in reverie", Schulz said, in particular accusing her of using military aircraft at "dirt cheap" prices to fly around the country for her 50 campaign stops in the final six weeks of the election.

Merkel said at her annual summer news conference ahead of a general election that steps had been taken in the wake of that decision to ensure that such an influx would not repeat itself. They had repeatedly criticized Merkel for her decision two years ago to let in almost 900,000 refugees, while other European Union countries barely took in a few hundred or hardly any at all.

"The EU stands by its promise to make available an additional €3 billion once this initial amount of €3 billion has been entirely used", she said.

The chancellor also appeared unworried about voter blowback from eurozone bailouts, another issue that has drawn criticism in recent years but failed to ignite in the campaign.

"We demand the release of Deniz Yücel, Peter Steudtner and Mesale Tolu", Merkel said in reference to three German citizens (a journalist, a human rights activist and a translator, respectively) imprisoned in Turkey.

The arrests have contributed to worsening relations between Berlin and Ankara, which have also been strained by other issues.

Merkel said: "as much as I want good relations with Poland, our neighbour. we can not stay silent and say nothing just to keep the peace" while stressing that the rule of law was "the basis for cooperation within the EU".

"When we are able to implement the Minsk agreements agenda we would have a good chance that would lead to the lifting of the sanctions", she said.

Merkel announced her intention to combat illegal refugee trafficking, as well as the causes for migration.
