a number of demonstrations both for and against data on over the next twenty four hours but with thousands of police deployed in central beilin there is determination that the street protests will not overshadow the diplomacy. german president steinmeyer greeted at one of bellevue palace this visit is an attempt to normalize relations when times are anything but normal turkey is holding a number of germans as political prisoners not to mention thousands of its own citizens many politicians worry the owners go too far. because from the people i think there's a peaceful cos and to me it smells like appeasement is totally wrong because it betrays all those who are victims of oppression and there are hundreds and thousands of them in turkey and. many m.p.'s boycotted the state banquet at germany's presidential residence the empty rows were filled with of the guests with germany's leaders determined to keep the shares together but the differences remain
