Erdogan accuses European Union of 'crusade' against Islam

"We agreed that three agreements will be implemented together.it is the nature of agreement", he said.

"When it comes to me I will approve it without hesitation", he said.

Thomas Oppermann, the parliamentary caucus leader of Gabriel's Social Democrats, said Turkey's chances of joining the European Union would be "gone for good" if the country reintroduced the death penalty, as Erdogan has suggested. But Erdogan said he would sign it immediately.

"What Hans and George say is not important for me", he said, using two common European names. Let us remind you that you can not play games in this region and ignore Turkey, ' he added.

Relations between Berlin and Ankara have soured recently over a German Parliament resolution labeling the 20th century killing of Armenians as "genocide", Turkey's crackdown on the opposition and civil society following a failed coup last summer, and appearances in Germany by Turkish officials campaigning for constitutional change in an upcoming referendum.

Erdogan has repeatedly accused European Union states of behaving like Nazi Germany over what he sees as discrimination against Turks, in comments that have caused outrage across the continent.

"Hey Rutte! You may have emerged as the No. 1 party in the election, but you must know that you have lost Turkey as your friend", Erdogan said in a televised speech, amid a diplomatic crisis with The Hague due to the blocking of campaign rallies by Turkish ministers.

The dominant Turkish leader accused Germany and the Netherlands of "fascist actions" for cancelling several planned rallies of his ministers. However, Mr Cavusoglu said in an interview with the HaberTurk broadcaster late on Thursday that there was "no reason" for Turkey to "move away from Europe".

Also on Saturday, Germany's foreign intelligence chief dismissed the Turkish government's claim that the US-based Islamic preacher Fethullah Gulen was the mastermind of the July 15 coup attempt.

"What we saw following the putsch would have happened regardless, maybe not on the same scale and with such radicalism", he said.
