Reinstating the death penalty in Turkey would end EU accession talks, a German government spokesman has stated. Meanwhile, EU Foreign Policy Chief Federica Mogherini also warned that no country can become an EU member that has capital punishment.

“Introduction of death penalty would mean immediate suspension of accession talks,” German government spokesman Steffen Seibert said on Monday.

Turkey is part of the Council of Europe and is bound by the European Convention on Human Rights, the EU Foreign Policy Chief noted.

“No country can become an EU member state if it introduces the death penalty,” she said. “Turkey is an important part of the Council of Europe and is bound by the European Convention on Human Rights, which is very clear on the death penalty.”

It is wrong to make a hasty decision about the death penalty, Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim said, adding that, at the same time, Turkey cannot ignore the demands of its own people, Reuters reported.

Following a cabinet meeting, Yildirim noted that reinstating the death penalty would require a changing the constitution.

Earlier, President Erdogan said that the parliament may discuss reintroducing the death penalty in Turkey. “We will continue to clean the virus from all state bodies because this virus has spread. Unfortunately like a cancer, this virus has enveloped the state,” he told supporters on Saturday.

A number of EU officials and politicians have voiced concerns over the Turkish government’s crackdown on fundamental rights. A deal to grant Turks visa-free travel to the EU is also in jeopardy, amid calls that the failed coup must not be used as a “carte blanche for arbitrariness.”

The EU signed a migrant deal with Ankara in March, according to which Turkey would take back refugees seeking asylum in the EU in exchange for a multi-billion euro aid package, as well as unprecedented political concessions, including the visa-free regime for Turkish citizens.

“We have nothing against a refugee agreement with Turkey,” Horst Seehofer, the leader of the Christian Social Union (CSU), which is the sister party of Merkel’s Christian Democratic Union (CDU), told German broadcaster ARD on Sunday, adding that “total freedom of movement” for Turks is “problematic,” however.

Seehofer said concerns about the visa-free regime “have become even stronger” since the failed coup that has left over 290 people dead.

      • Ergenekon Has Recaptured Control of the Turkish Military and Is Pushing Turkey Away from NATO and into Israel and Russia’s Arms

        Christopher Jon Bjerknes

        The Doenmeh are consolidating their power in Turkey. They have always led the Turkish military and used it to control the State. The Turkish People have long looked to the military to safeguard a secular society.

        The crypto-Jew Mustafa Kemal Ataturk directly contradicted the aims of the Turkish Empire and asserted Turkish nationalism and secularism in opposition to Turkish imperialism and the caliphate. He helped the jews take Palestine and the bolsheviks, Armenia.

        The Ergenekon are again in league with the bolsheviks. And the bolsheviks are again preparing to redraw the map. The failed and phony coup they staged and blamed on the Gulenists allowed them to purge not only the military, but Turkish society as a whole of any opposition to the moves they are about to make.

        The jews want to take Turkey out of NATO and make it a bolshevik republic of a revived and expanded Soviet Union. The jews want to cut Western Civilization off from its supplies of energy, and place all of Islam behind an iron curtain of soviet oppression. Erdogan and Ergenekon are uniting Turkey and the AKP behind marxism and Russia.

        The wars in Syria, the struggles of and with the Kurds, and the tensions in Armenia are being exploited to create an opportunity to restructure the region in ways which will destroy Western influence in Islamic nations, and handicap NATO and its ability to defend Europe and America from communist Russia and China. At the same time, many with close ties to communist Russia are trying to drive NATO into a war with Islam and away from its mission to defend Europe and America. Losing Turkey to the Soviet Union will make this proposed war infinitely more difficult. The communists are calling for the USA to withdraw its nuclear weapons from Turkey, in the name of securing them from our NATO ally.

        Many moves are being made to drive a wedge in the alliance and hand Turkey over to Russia. Syria is at the point of this wedge, and the communists in Turkey are acting as go betweens from Turkey to Russia and Syria, so there can be no doubt that the results which ensue from these talks will benefit the communists and provide them with the intelligence they need to subvert NATO.

      • The reaction of the Eurasian movement to the military coup in Turkey

        This Katehon´s approach isn´t surprising. Since 90´s of 20th century the Eurasian movement had created ties with politicians and intellectuals and published magazines and academic journals in Turkey. Dugin is the principal agent in the formation of these ties visiting the country several times. According Laruelle, the Eurasian thought approaches the old pan-Turkism, which in it´s origin sought the unification of the Turkic peoples in the same state. But the ideology was driven out of power even in 1923 by Ataturk´s nationalist government, and in the post-Cold War period was discredited by it´s association to far-right nationalist groups and lack of receptivity in Central Asian coutries. Thus, Eurasianism gives Turkey a new geopolitical vision and a less ideological approach in the country´s integration strategy in Eurasia. The Ankara´s approchment with Central Asian countries, whose peoples speak lenguages of Turkish origin, takes on a more “pragmatic” and “politically correct” tone instead the national and ideologized pan-Turkism bias.

  12. Newsbud Breaking News: Turkey’s Coup Plotters are Members of NATO’s Rapid Deployable Corps

    CIA-Gulen Driven Turkish Police Forces Aided & Abetted the Failed Coup Plot

    The three most important regiments involved in the Turkey Attempted Coup plot and implementation have been part (members) of NATO’s Rapid Deployable Corps (NRDC) since 2003.

    A group of plotters of the failed Turkish Coup Attempt used a WhatsApp group to communicate with each other. Based on well-documented information and established identities gathered from these intercepted communications, at least three out of the five coupist regiments were (and still are) part of NATO’s Rapid Deployable Corps. Further, the group used the emblem and slogan used by NATO’s Rapid Deployable Corps: “Peace at home, peace in the world.”

    The intercepted communications also expose the role of the CIA-Gulen network within Turkey’s police force, and how it readily welcomed and aided the Failed Coup Attempt.

    Newsbud news with Sibel Edmonds and Spiro Skouras delves into this significant exposé and provides viewers with context and analyses missing from western media outlets.
