BERLIN, July 18. /TASS/. If Turkey decides to reintroduce death penalty after the coup d’etat attempt, this would put an end to negotiations on its EU membership, a spokesman for the German government Stephen Zeibert said on Monday.

"Germany and EU countries have a clear stance, we are against death penalty. A country with capital punishment cannot be an EU member," Zeibert said. "If Turkey reintroduces death penalty, this would mean end to EU accession talks."
