Berlin freezes arms shipments to Turkey: Report

SHARE:

Germany has frozen all arms deliveries to Turkey, a newspaper reported on Friday, amid a row between the NATO partners that has sharply worsened since Ankara arrested several human rights activists.

Berlin stepped up its travel advisory for Turkey on Thursday and warned it would review state guarantees for foreign investment there - measures which Ankara labelled "blackmail and threats".

As part of a sweeping overhaul of bilateral ties, Germany is also "freezing all planned and ongoing arms deliveries to Turkey," the top-circulation Bild newspaper reported without citing a source.

Chancellor Angela Merkel's right-hand man, Peter Altmaier, did not confirm or deny the report in a ZDF television interview but warned that "we will at any time consider whether further measures are necessary".

Relations between Turkey and Germany, home to three million ethnic Turks, have been badly strained, particularly since a failed coup a year ago against President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

In the months after the July 2016 coup attempt, Germany already blocked 11 separate arms export shipments to Turkey, including handguns, ammunition or weapons components, according to media reports.

Relations sharply deteriorated after a Turkish court on Tuesday ordered six rights activists should remain in custody for allegedly aiding a "terror" group, among them German citizen Peter Steudtner.

In the war of words, German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schaeuble compared Erdogan's Turkey with the former communist German Democratic Republic (GDR).

"Turkey is arresting people arbitrarily and not respecting even minimal consular standards," said Schaeuble.

"It reminds me of the way it was in the GDR. When you travelled there, you knew, if something happens to you, nobody can help you."

Altmaier also confirmed that Berlin would urge Brussels to freeze 4.45 billion euros ($5.2bn) in EU funds theoretically earmarked until end-2020 for Turkey, a long-term aspirant for membership to the bloc.
