“Little sewer rat” – Ankara criticizes Kubicki – politics

The Turkish government has “strongly” condemned a controversial animal comparison by FDP Deputy Wolfgang Kubicki to Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan and summoned the German ambassador. The “unacceptable statements” are inappropriate for his office as Vice President of the German Bundestag and lack any political morality and responsibility, said a spokesman for the Turkish Foreign Ministry. The German ambassador was also informed of “our strong reaction” to this issue. The day before, Kubicki had admitted that he had called Erdoğan a “little sewer rat” at an election campaign event because of his refugee policy.
