BERLIN (Reuters) - German Economy Minister Peter Altmaier said on Friday that the German government would not act against its convictions on human right but that business with Turkey must still be possible.

Germany has an interest in Turkey not becoming unstable, Altmaier told German broadcaster Deutschlandfunk (DLF) during a trip to Turkey, on which he was accompanied by a delegation of German business representatives.

“I have defended the interests of German companies here that say: ‘We feel insecure in our activities in Turkey’,” he added.
