Ankara Summons German Ambassador After Detention of Parliament Speaker

German Ambassador to Ankara Martin Erdmann was summoned to the Turkish Foreign Ministry following a temporary detention of Turkish Parliament Deputy Speaker Ayse Nur Bahcekapili at the Cologne airport, a diplomatic source told RIA Novosti on Wednesday.

Bahcekapılı was detained for 45 minutes in the Cologne airport on Monday on her way back to Turkey, since the police found her temporary passport invalid.

The deputy speaker obtained a temporary document in the Turkish Consulate after her bag with all her identity cards had been stolen during her working visit to Cologne.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, alongside with the parliament, strongly criticized German authorities over the incident and warned about retaliatory measures.
