Luxembourg predicts introduction of sanctions against Turkey
Luxembourg's Foreign Minister Jean Asselborn accused the Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan of using methods reminiscent of those employed by Nazis in a crackdown following July's coup attempt.
Jean Asselborn told Germany's Deutschlandfunk radio Monday that people who've been fired have their names published, have no chance of finding another job and no income, and risk hunger.
"These are methods, one must say this bluntly, that were used during Nazi rule. And there has been a really, really bad evolution in Turkey since July that we as the European Union cannot simply accept," the New York Times cited him as saying.
He says Turkey's strong economic ties with the EU are "absolutely a means of pressure."
