ANKARA, TURKEY - MARCH 9: Turkish Presidential spokesman Ibrahim Kalin holds a press conference at Presidental Complex in Ankara, Turkey on March 9, 2017. Speaking to reporters at the Presidential Complex, Kalin said Turkey is saddened by European governments cancelling scheduled rallies for Turkey’s April 16 constitutional referendum, calling the EU’s current situation troubling. Kalin's remarks followed German Chancellor Angela Merkel saying that comments by Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan accusing Berlin of "Nazi practices" are intolerable. Merkel said that the Nazi remarks are "sad and incredibly misplaced" and “must stop". Kalin said, however, “It is indeed Turkey that is saddened by Germany's systematic antagonism against Erdogan and Turkey."
