The statement was strong, considered and showed exactly why the 29-year-old took such time to react to his treatment following Germany's World Cup exit.
Ozil said the meeting did not amount to any endorsement of Erdogan's policies and added that they had discussed football.
Ozil said his mother had always told him to be respectful and remember his ancestry, heritage and family traditions, adding: "I have two hearts, one German and one Turkish".
The star football player said he would not stand DFB's president Reinhard Grindel blame for Germany's poor performance in Russian Federation.
Ozil has announced his retirement from global football after accusing the German Football Association of treating him with "racism and disrespect".
In the statement issued on Sunday, Ozil said he was exhausted of the blames from the Germany media who have repeatedly blamed his dual heritage and a simple picture for a bad World Cup on behalf of an entire squad.
Özil was part of the Germany squad that exited the World Cup in Russian Federation at the group stage and was the object of criticism for his performances as well as his meeting with Erdogan, who has been accused of human rights abuses, the Guardian reports.

"But when high-ranking DFB officials disrespect my Turkish roots and selfishly turn me into political propaganda, then enough is enough".
Hoeness went on to say that Ozil "has been shit for years" and that Bayern would target Ozil when they played Arsenal because "we knew he is a weak point".
The Arsenal midfielder blamed the German Football Federation (DFB) for failing to defend him against his most strident critics, lashing out at "mistreatment" in particular from DFB President Reinhard Grindel.
He also maintained that Erdogan spoke "exclusively football" with him, and to remember that the only time he had met with the Turkish president before was precisely along with Merkel, during a match between the German and Turkish teams.
After making his debut in 2009, Ozil played in three World Cups for Germany, including the 2014 World Cup-winning side and finishes with 92 worldwide caps and 29 goals.
"Having respect for political office is a view that I'm sure both the Queen and Prime Minister Theresa May share when they too hosted Erdogan in London". "He won his last tackle before the 2014 World Cup". For me, it didn't matter who was president, it mattered that it was the president.
