The possible introduction of Turkish President Recep Tayyip erdoğan death penalty will put an end to Ankara’s dialogue with the European Union. This was stated by German Chancellor Angela Merkel in an interview with Redaktionsnetzwerk Deutschland, Deutsche Welle reports.
At the same time, she called for prudence in the further relations between EU and Turkey and stated that Europe and Turkey should not completely turn away from each other.
The head of the German government also stressed that the task to open a new Chapter in talks with Turkey about EU membership is not worth it.
On 17 April, after the announcement of the results of the constitutional referendum in Turkey, Erdogan said he intends to restore the death penalty.
