Erdogan calls on Turks in Germany to reject main parties - Standard

German Chancellor Angela Merkel

Turkey was also angered when Germany provided asylum to Turkish officers allegedly linked to the attempted coup.

"Give necessary support to political parties that do not engage in enmity against Turkey", he added.

"Turkey had demands but unfortunately a positive response could not be given to Turkey's expectations", said Bozdag, speaking to reporters in Yozgat. Ties between North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies Turkey and the United States have been strained by Washington's support for Kurdish YPG fighters leading the assault on Islamic State in the Syrian city of Raqqa.

"SPD [Social Democrats], the Green Party are all enemies of Turkey", he said.

That report came not long after Turkey arrested German human rights activist Peter Steudtner, charging him with "supporting a terrorist organization", despite Berlin saying he had merely traveled to Turkey to speak at a local human rights workshop.

"Teach them (the three parties) a lesson in the German elections".

Trump wants faster permitting on infrastructure projects
A government official told Reuters that Trump's decision would "streamline the current process" of approving construction on infrastructure.

Turkey's EU minister has condemned German Chancellor Angela Merkel's reluctance to expand the European Union's customs union with Turkey. "Forgive me but you have your legal system and so do we", Erdoğan said.

Turkish-born German writer Dogan Akhanli was arrested in the Spanish city of Granada on Saturday by police fulfilling an global arrest warrant issued by Interpol in response to a request by authorities in Turkey. It was not clear why.

The BBC notes that Erdogan is still furious at the German government for refusing to allow his officials to campaign among the German Turkish community during the April referendum that increased Erdogan's powers as president.

Merkel's spokesman Steffen Seibert said on Twitter: "We expect foreign governments to not interfere in our internal affairs".

Ozdemir had previously pressed Ankara to recognise the World War I killings of Armenians as genocide.

Germans go to the polls on September 24th for elections where Merkel is running for a fourth term.
