Merkel asks Turks in Germany for loyalty
Angela Merkel expects people of Turkish origin living in Germany to "develop a high level of loyalty to our nation", she told Dortmund-based newspaper Ruhr Nachrichten. The chancellor also asked Turkish-Germans to keep calm in the face of Turkey's political upheavals. President Recep Tayyip Erdogan launched a crackdown on dissent following a foiled coup on 15 July. Germany is home to more than three million people of Turkish origin.
