President of the European Commission Jean Claude Juncker has made statements concerning Turkey’s accession negotiations to the EU.
According to a report by Ahmet Yıldırım, Dortmund correspondent of the Doğan News Agency, interviewing to Der Spiegel Juncker said, “I told Erdogan that Turkey needs to come to terms with its European intentions”.
“Many people in Turkey are pro-European minded, but that sentiment is very limited within the government. It appears to be aiming to hinder EU accession and pin the blame on Brussels. That, in my opinion, is not in the interest of the Turkish people.
“I am holding to my agreements. We declared Turkey to be an accession state at the 1999 Helsinki Summit. That still applies”. (AS/TK)
