Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yıldırım and German Chancellor Angela Merkel will meet in Berlin on Feb. 14, the German government’s spokesman said on Feb. 12.

Axar.az reports citing Huriyyet Daily News.

“The prime ministers will exchange views on bilateral relations and international issues,” Steffen Seibert, the spokesman, said in a statement.

Both leaders are expected to hold a news conference following their meeting at the Chancellery.

The Turkish premier is also scheduled to attend the Munich Security Conference on Feb. 16 and 17.

Ties between Turkey and Germany were strained in recent years, as Turkish politicians blasted their German counterparts for not taking serious measures against outlawed groups and organizations Turkey deems terrorist, such as the Fethullahist Terrorist Organization (FETÖ) and the outlawed Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK).

Both groups have a large network in Germany and carry out significant propaganda, recruitment and funding activities, according to the Turkish government.

The arrest of around a dozen German citizens in Turkey, including a reporter, a translator, and a human rights activist, has also been a source of friction between Ankara and Berlin.

Despite repeated calls by German politicians for the release of their citizens, the Turkish government ruled out any political influence on the judiciary and advised them to wait for the decision of the courts.
