  • Erdogan stated that america make a mistake in relations with Turkey

Turkey's president says his country is fighting an "economic war" with the United States and has called for a boycott of the dollar and American goods such as iPhones.But Recep Tayyip Erdogan's government has quietly turned to Wall Street for help in fixing the country's struggling economy.

"They ostracized our Mesut Ozdil, our Ilkay, who were born and raised in Germany, just because we had a photo taken with them", Erdogan said while speaking at the ribbon-cutting for a new mosque in Cologne.

Germany and Turkey have clashed over numerous issues in recent years, including Turkey's jailing of German journalists.

"Both sides are willing to move forward, out of the stalemate", Ilke Toygur, analyst at the Elcano Royal Institute in Madrid, told AFP.

Turkey demanded, during a meeting with armed opposition faction in Idlib, withdrawal from demilitarized zones, according to Sochi deal between Russian president Vladimir Putin and Turkey's president Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

He noted that Turkey lifted the state of emergency following the June 24 presidential and parliamentary elections in the country.




Erdogan has announced that the withdrawal of radical groups had already started.

Erdogan was in Germany for a visit aimed at reducing tensions between the two North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies.

Mr Erdogan hit back at Mr Steinmeier in Turkish media, saying the president's comments were "not very appropriate" and adding Turkey would not behave the same towards "a guest".

"It will be a long and arduous road toward normalisation", he said.

Erdogan's Friday visit to Berlin has stirred considerable controversy in Germany, with many criticizing Merkel for hosting a leader which some in the country accuse of being increasingly authoritarian.
