Erdogan tells Germany's FM Gabriel to know his limits

German Chancellor Angela Merkel

The opposition Greens meanwhile have pushed for an even tougher line against Ankara, with its co-leader Cem Ozdemir, who is himself of Turkish origin, a vocal critic of Erdogan.

On Saturday, Turkish Deputy Prime Minister Bekir Bozdag said that Germany had refused to answer a diplomatic note issued during the week inquiring whether Oksuz was in the country.

"In fact, they did not". The Navies of the two countries will visit each other. Gulen, has however, denied the accusations.

Turkey's presidential spokesman on Thursday said Ankara hoped the German authorities would investigate recent media reports claiming a key suspect from last year's defeated coup is living in the European Union country. While most were placard-waving CDU supporters, several dozen supporters of the nationalist Alternative for Germany party, or AfD, blew whistles and shouted at Merkel.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has called on the Turkish population in Germany not to vote for those parties he called are "aggressive" against Turkey in the upcoming general elections.

Erdogan had a day earlier caused consternation in Berlin by urging ethnic Turks in Germany to vote against both parties in Chancellor Angela Merkel's governing coalition.

He also expressed solidarity with the women who were fighting a spirited battle against malpractices of triple talaq . Taking a jibe at "a handful of separatists", he said they were adopting new tactics to keep the pot boiling.

He also called Özedmir's Green party "enemies of Turkey".

"They are all enemies of Turkey". "Vote for those who don't have enmity towards Turkey", he said.

The Turkish leader's intervention in the German campaign less than six weeks before the September 24 vote drew a swift rebuke from Social Democratic politicians, including chancellery candidate Martin Schulz and Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel. Atila Karaborklu, the co-chairman of Germany's Turkish Community association, accused Erdogan of "seeking to divide German society".

A number of German citizens have been detained and arrested in Turkey since the coup attempt.

Turkish-born German writer Dogan Akhanli was arrested in the Spanish city of Granada on Saturday by police fulfilling an worldwide arrest warrant issued by Interpol in response to a request by authorities in Turkey. An estimated 1 million can vote. Many of them came, or are the descendants of those who came, to West Germany as gastarbeiter (guest workers) from the 1960s, to make up for a postwar labour shortage.
