German Chancellor Angela Merkel wants better ties with Turkey, but says it's a complicated issue.

"We will have to wait and see how the situation develops", said Merkel.

She added this was also true for other detained Germans whose cases had not garnered as much public attention.

Although Merkel was interrupted for several times by whistles and jeers by thousands of protestors, Merkel made it clear in her speech that refugees were welcome in Germany and the year like 2015 would not repeat.

Eurosceptics said Merkel's commentswere evidence of the EU's drive for more co-operation between the Member States, and that the United Kingdom was right to leave the bloc and maintain its independence. The arrival in Germany of a million refugees over the last two years, mainly from Syria and Iraq, opened deep rifts in Chancellor Angela Merkel's conservative party and is becoming a campaign theme ahead of a September 24 national election.
