Cavusoglu then accused her of falling into "Greek propaganda". Germany had to give up its one -sided party for Greece and take on a broker role again.

It gave up this role.

Especially for NATO partners such as Turkey and Greece, it must be "a matter of course" that we respect our limits, "she said. In the case of disputes, goals are "never to be achieved with escalation".

Cavusoglu accused Baerbock to spare Greece with criticism - for example in the question of illegal rejections of refugees on the Greek border. "You should be able to say Greece that Greece is wrong," Cavusoglu asked the German Foreign Minister. Here, too, he accused Baerbock double standards: the EU countries spared each other with criticism, but then directed them all the more violently against Turkey.

controversy views also represented the two ministers with a view of northern Syria. Cavusoglu said the Turkish army was active there to combat Kurdish "terrorist groups" that threatened Turkey. Baerbock warned that an expansion of the Turkish military mission could continue to worsen the situation there and that the breeding ground could prepare the breeding ground for a newly strengthened radical Islamic groups.
