The German Foreign Ministry urged Turkey to act with restraint and responsibility in Syria, when speaking at a Federal Press Conference (BPK) in Berlin on Wednesday.

During the press conference, German Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Maria Adebahr called on Ankara “to show restraint militarily,” arguing that “a military intervention could jeopardise the humanitarian situation, which is bad enough.”

She went on to say that US National Security Advisor John Bolton “is currently in the region for talks, which we welcome if they help keep the Syria process peaceful and violence-free.”

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has repeatedly threatened to launch an offensive against US-backed Kurdish militants in northern Syria.

On Tuesday, Erdogan lashed out at Bolton over his pledges to ensure Turkey’s non-aggression against the US-backed Kurdish fighters amid the US’ planned drawdown of its troops in Syria.

Bolton has been touring the Middle East, intended in part to reassure its allies amid criticism over Washington’s decision to withdraw its troops from Syria.

Germany should play the carrot and the stick trick by understating they may send all the Turkish expats on their soil back home… Not sure how many they are but about 3+ millions wouldn’t surprise me…

@Daeshbags-Sux, start with the 23% who receive Hartz IV. Welfare for people who are unemployed for more than a year or have not paid into social insurance scheme for some reason.

Continue with blocking tourism and EU imports from Turkey.

p.s. Less than 3 million – and many of the expats with Turkish passports are no ethnic Turks.

In Denmark we count Turks as danes when they have danish citicenship. Even they have Turkish one we have many well integrtated as well as some actually are assimilated.

Besides this many of are Kurds also comes from Turkey as well as their children and Grandchildren.

I could understand, if You wrote the non integrated having no jobs as well or something, but thats not, what You write.

Erdogan should first send his children on the frontline in Northern Syria….then I will take him seriously. One would suspect that if the Kurds are smart, they will merge into yhe ranks of the Syrian Army once & for all…hence giving Ankara no reason to invade further.
