After the ‘summit’ with Erdogan, a shrinking Merkel says, EU-Turkey migrant deal still intact. Whatever Angela?
While Idlib and the border crisis were top of the agenda for Tuesday’s video call, the four leaders also agreed that they “should not lose sight” of stalled talks on expanding the customs union between the EU and Turkey, the German chancellor told reporters after the call.
Yes, Merkel wants to try to appease Erdogan for his behavior 🙄; some things never change. At this point Merkel has become unglued, someone from the EU must publicly call for her to step aside…she has become an obstacle for Europe. Neither Merkel nor Macron can be allowed to represent the EU in these matters. Both Merkel and the Grand Coalition (including the CSU pretenders in Bavaria) have failed Europe…and Macron has never been respected by others outside of his little Renew Europe/Benelux circle. What was he doing there?
The talks, which also included French President Emmanuel Macron and British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, were originally planned for Istanbul but were switched to a video call due to the coronavirus crisis.
