To put it bluntly, Erdogan and the European Commission President Von der Leyen's quarrel was actually caused by two identities of Von der Leyen: first, the European Commission; second, Germany. Von der Leyen was the Minister of Defense in "Germany" before taking the presidency of the European Commission. According to observer Esmahan Aykol, a Turkish-German, criticism of Turkey by the European Commission has grown unabated in recent years. Erdogan's rudeness to Von der Leyen was meant to retaliate against Germany, which has had strained relations with Erdogan for some time after he secretly promoted the millions of Turkish citizens living in Germany people, who voted against the traditional ruling party in local elections. Merkel's Germany has also not been very friendly to Turkey.
Erdogan's unreasonable actions offended the right-wing European People's Party, and von der Leyen won the support of the party and successfully became the president of the European Commission. In fact, at the very beginning of his political career, Erdogan whatsapp list was supported by Christian Democrats within the European Union. They originally identified Erdogan as a moderate Islamist and expected Erdogan to be able to work under the banner of Islam.
Assist right-wing Christian Democrats or other centrists. Last but not least, Turkey has undoubtedly reduced the possibility of entering the EU at this stage with its rude behavior. In the EU structure, the Council of the EU, the European Commission and the European Parliament are the three major institutions. Von der Leyen's executive committee is responsible for implementing the resolutions of the council and parliament, and its power is definitely not low. Turkey's application for EU membership dates back to 1987, and it became a candidate country in 1999. Faced with the EU's executive committee, most of the purview of accession norms, Turkey's humiliation of the body's president will only add to the road to membership. It is worth noting that German Chancellor Angela Merkel has repeatedly opposed Turkey's accession.
