Turkish foreign minister seeks 'new beginning' with Germany
Turkey's foreign minister said Friday it's time to reset relations with Germany as he prepared to meet his German counterpart following more than a year of spiraling tensions between the NATO allies, ABC News reports.
Germany's Sigmar Gabriel will host Turkey's Mevlut Cavusoglu on Saturday in his home town, Goslar.
Cavusoglu wrote in an article for Germany's Funke newspaper group Friday that "both sides have an interest in a new beginning" but that's only possible "if we break the current crisis spiral in our relationship."
He hinted at willingness for faster legal proceedings but also urged an end to the "standstill" in Turkey's European Union accession negotiations.
