Merkel awoke: Turkey’s actions in Afrin are unacceptable

45
Today, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, for the first time since re-election to the post on 4, decided to comment on the operation of the Turkish army in northern Syria for the first time. At the same time, Merkel’s statement looks as if Erdogan started the operation “Olive Branch” only yesterday. For a long time, she remained silent about the actions of the “ally” in NATO, Angela Merkel, stated that the hostilities carried out by the Turkish army and the pro-Turkish forces in Afrin are unacceptable.


Merkel awoke: Turkey’s actions in Afrin are unacceptable


FAZ quotes Merkel's statement:
From the point of view of the legitimate interests of Turkish security, it is in no way acceptable to call what Turkey does in Afrin. There, thousands and thousands of civilians are persecuted, they die. Someone has to run. We condemn (the actions of Turkey) in the strongest terms.


At the same time, in the German press, they note that, until now, the federal government has been very cautious about Turkey’s actions in the SAR and has not allowed itself any criticism of Ankara. As noted in Germany itself, one gets the impression that Merkel was “awakened” and did not realize that the operation in Afrin was going on for more than two months.

      But on the other hand .... before the official re-election to the post of chancellor, in general, it was impossible to speak out on international topics. hi

          Not certainly in that way.
          She would continue to be silent (well, where, for example, is such a statement from France?), But some parties raise a legitimate question here: why does Germany still supply arms to Turkey?

        And what, should Sultan Erdogan pay attention to this? I doubt it.
        However, this is an answer for a hint about grandmothers and refugees.

    Turks have all Kurds, by definition, terrorists. I don’t know how it is now, but about 20 years ago just because the child was named after the Kurdish name was given prison sentences, there were no Kurdish newspapers, no radio and television channels. And just for talking in their native language, the Kurds were persecuted. Only because of international pressure on Turkey, after the arrest and sentencing of death to Abdullah Ocalan, did any relief of the draconian laws against the Kurds begin.
