EU-Turkey Relations: Erdogan Left Europe Commission President Speechless After Humiliating Snub

The day after Turkey’s President Erdogan arrested ten admirals on fears of new coup rumblings over their signing a ‘treasonous’ letter, a high level EU ‘reconciliation’ meeting with Turkey didn’t go so well on Tuesday.

I am surprised that the elephant in the room was never mentioned in the above post. To quote Zerohedge: “Unfazed, Michel took the seat immediately to Erdogan’s right with von der Leyen left confined to a distant couch and ultimately sidelined in the conversation (or so we can presume). The visibly disgruntled European Commission president was also largely left out of the photo op that followed as it was only Michel and Erdogan seated in front of the EU and Turkey flags.” I am very familiar with German/Western European rules of conduct, having been brought up there as a child in a… Read more »

I fully agree with you. How the times have changed. The whole thing has been dealt with in such a sloppy manner. Not that I have any sympathies for the EU leaders. If you are going to act as boot lickers then that treatment is all that befits you.

Firstly, Erdogan isn’t a European Gentleman, he’s a Turkish would be despot. Secondly, you say: The first question that leaps to my mind is WHY were only two chairs put into a room set up for a meeting between three people – two top representatives of the EU and an invited foreign head of state? Actually, the foreign head of state had invited these representatives to his country. That being the case, you play by his rules.

Sorry darling, but you didn’t. I asked my computer who the Head of the EU was, and it came back as: “Ursula von der Leyen
President of the European Commission Incumbent Ursula von der Leyen since 1 December 2019 European Commission Style President Status Chief Executive”. Doesn’t sound like she is an “underling.” And if I were you, I really wouldn’t call Alexander Mercouris ignorant.

Don’t ask a computer, dear, use your brain. Here’s a quote from Wikipedia, admittedly not the most outstanding encyclopedia. According to protocol, it is the President of the Parliament who comes first, as it is listed first in the treaties.[2] However, on the world stage, the principal representative of the EU is considered to be the President of the European Council,[3] but the President of the European Commission, as head of the executive branch of the European Union, takes part in the G7 and other international summits as well.[1] Seems very explicit to me Also, in a recent post Mr Mercouris actually referred to M Michel… Read more »
