ANKARA (Reuters) – Germany has no right to block a planned update of Turkey’s customs union with the European Union, Turkish Economy Minister Nihat Zeybekci said on Thursday, touching on a simmering row between Ankara and Berlin.

Speaking to reporters in Ankara, Zeybekci said there were no problems in Turkey’s accession negotiations with the EU and that the process continued.
