Erdogan berates German FM in elections interference row: know your limits

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan lashed out at German Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel when speaking from his Justice and Development Party’s (AKP) provincial advisory council meeting, Denizli, on Saturday, stating that the FM “does not know his limits.» «Now they have a foreign minister who does not know his limits. Who are you to talk to the President of Turkey? Talk to the Foreign... Еще Minister of Turkey. Know your limits. He dares to lecture us. What is your background in politics? How old are you?» Erdogan addressed to Gabriel. On Friday, Erdogan urged German Turkis not to vote for German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s Christian Democrats (CDU), Martin Schulz’s Social Democrat Party (SDP) or the Green Party in the upcoming federal election on 24 September, stating that they each held an anti-Turkish stance. Gabriel commented on the statement, saying that it was «an unprecedented act of interference in the sovereignty of our country.»
