Erdogan furious: German ambassador now unwanted person in Turkey

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan (67) expressed his anger against the German ambassador!

ISTANBUL – Turkey has declared the ambassadors of Germany, the US and eight other states as unwanted persons.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said in Eskiehir on Saturday that he had instructed the foreign ministry to do so. Dutch media reports that the Dutch ambassador has already been expelled.

“I ordered my foreign minister. I said, look at it that these ten ambassadors are declared ‘personality non great’ as soon as possible,” Erdogan said.

In international diplomacy, classification as “Persona non greta” is usually followed by expulsion!

Erdogan had previously indirectly threatened the ambassadors with deportation, demanding the release of cultural patron Osman Kavala. It was initially unclear whether Erdogan’s latest statements would now lead directly to the expulsion of diplomats from a total of ten countries.

“We may not have the luxury of welcoming you to our country,” Erdogan said on Thursday, at the sight of diplomats, according to state news agency Anadolu.

“Do you deserve to teach Turkey such a lesson? Who are you already?” Germany or the USA not only released “rogues, killers and terrorists”.

The embassies of Germany and nine other countries in Ankara published an appeal on Monday in which they sought the release of Kavala, who was arrested in 2017, in the context of decisions of the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR).

After this, the Turkish Foreign Ministry summoned the respective ambassadors. The appointed diplomats also included people from the US, France and the Netherlands.

ECTHR had already requested Kavala’s release in 2019. Turkey has so far ignored the decision, although as a member of the Council of Europe it is obliged to actually implement it.

Kavala and more than 50 other defendants are accused of attempting a coup in connection with the anti-government Gezi protests in Istanbul in 2013. Kavala is also accused of “political and military espionage” in connection with the 2016 coup attempt.
