Germany sees no reason to debate Turkey’s NATO membership, Foreign Ministry spokesman said on Wednesday amid recent tensions between Ankara and Western capitals.
Axar.az reports citing to Anadolu Agency speaking at a news conference in Berlin, Foreign Ministry spokesman Martin Schaefer underlined that Turkey and Germany continue to share common interests in defense and security matters.
About disagreements on a number of political issues, including democracy and human rights, Schaefer said these should be discussed through bilateral dialogue between Turkey and its Western partners.
“German government has no idea or plan at all towards pushing a significant partner such as Turkey out of NATO,” he said, adding that for decades Turkey struggled together with its allies for the freedom of the Western world.
