Turkey Summons German Ambassador over Kurdish Festival

Turkey Summons German Ambassador over Kurdish Festival”

In a statement detailing operations held between September 11 and Monday, the ministry said: "During the operations, a total of 29 terrorists were killed; 11 of them surrendered while six others were captured alive".

Turkey today summoned the German ambassador for the second time in just three days, Turkish diplomatic sources said, as an intensifying bilateral crisis showed no sign of ending.

Turkish state-run news agency Anadolu said the summons related to a previous incident where Erdmann had been unable to attend but did not specify further.

The spokesman noted, however, that it was the 17th time Ambassador Martin Erdmann had received such an order since he began his tenure as Berlin's envoy to Ankara in 2015.

Schaefer told reporters in Berlin the number of summonses Erdmann had received was "very unusual" between "partners within NATO".

The ministry said late Saturday that a festival in Cologne used "symbols" of the outlawed Kurdistan Workers' Party or PKK, including pictures of the group's leader Abdullah Ocalan, imprisoned in Turkey.

The PKK is considered a terrorist organisation by Turkey, US and European Union which has ramped up attacks against the Turkish republic since 2015.

Turkey says Germany has ignored Ankara's requests for the extradition of suspects it believes are linked to the putsch and accused Berlin of using Nazi-like tactics by banning pro-Erdogan rallies on German soil. Germany has criticised mass arrests carried out in Turkey since last year's failed coup against President Tayyip Erdogan and demanded the release of around a dozen German or Turkish-German citizens arrested in recent months.
