During a long discussion, the diplomat made excuses and had apparently once again to explain to the country's leader the principle of freedom of speech, which Erdogan seems to be willing to violate not only in his own country.
The meeting took place following an official invitation, not a "friendly invitation" commonly used in diplomatic circles to discuss disagreements, and concerned an almost two minute satirical video, released by the popular German TV show "Extra 3" on March 17.
Creators of the video and the song titled "Erdowie, Erdowo, Erdogan" made fun of the Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, blaming him for violating democratic principles and imposing restrictions on press freedom in Turkey.
The text says, for example: "He lives in style, the boss from Bosporus" or "A journalist who wrote anything that Erdogan does not want, is tomorrow in jail."
Many considered Erdogan's decision to summon German Ambassador extraordinary and strange, criticizing his unusually harsh reaction to the criticism of his person.
In recent months, the Turkish president has engaged in the ever-increasing suppression of opposition media in Turkey. A trial of two high-profile Turkish journalists is currently underway in Istanbul.
Can Dundar and Erdem Gul, journalists with the newspaper Cumhuriyet, have been charged with the Turkish form of sedition, after alleging that Ankara was moving arms into Syria. Erdogan said that Dundar would "pay a heavy price," and both journalists face life in prison if found guilty.
