German Chancellor Angela Merkel adheres to the "prudence position" in the further relations of the European Union and Turkey. This is reported by DW.

Merkel believes that Europe and Turkey should not completely turn away from each other.

The Chancellor of the FRG stressed that there is no task "to open a new chapter" in negotiations with Turkey on membership in the EU.

At the same time, she stated that the possible introduction of the death penalty by Ankara would mean the end of this dialogue.

Earlier European Union accepted the results of Turkish referendum and is interested in country’s stability. It was reported by Federica Mogherini, the High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy.

As a result of the referendum, which is called the turning point in the history of the country, Turkey will turn from parliamentary to a presidential republic. The 'Yes' camp won 51.41 percent in Sunday's vote, in a narrower than expected victory, according to complete results released by election authorities.
