ANKARA - The spokesman for Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan on Thursday echoed German Chancellor Angela Merkel's comments that the two countries shared deep-seated differences.

Speaking at a news conference in Ankara, presidential spokesman Ibrahim Kalin said differences between Turkey and Germany included the fight against terrorism, adding that Kurdish militants roamed freely in Germany.

Tensions have been running high between the two NATO allies after the arrest of a German-Turkish journalist in Turkey and the cancellation of rallies by Turkish ministers aimed at drumming up support for an April 16 referendum to expand Erdogan's powers.
