Angelos Sirigos, a professor of international law, spoke on SKAI TV about Berlin’s attitude towards Ankara and the role the German side wants to play as the West’s “mediator” with Turkey.
Germany sends message to Turkey “I am here for you”.
“It wanted to pass,” the professor said.
He explained that this was a strategic move by Berlin because the EU does not have a strategy for the Ankara issue, but Germany does.
“He wants Turkey to be the mediator of the West. Now he sees a gap. France and the United States are the opposite. Britain deals with Britain.
He explained that the only embargo that could directly “injure” Turkey was the arms embargo, which is why the Greek side insists that European countries keep it because it is a moral issue.
He recalled that due to developments in Crimea, in 2014 France canceled the sale of two ready-made ships to Russia and even refunded the advance payment it had received. In addition, Germany did not sell new altar armored vehicles to Turkey last year. Canada has cut off its exports, realizing that its weapons systems were used in drones in attacks on Armenians in Nagorno-Karabakh.
