'Human rights? What Human rights violations? Turkey important player in region – EU Mogherinni. (Taz).
Turkey is an important player in the region, said the head of EU diplomacy Federica Mogherini at a press conference in Ankara, the Turkish TRT Haber TV channel reported Jan. 25.
Mogherini said that the relations between Turkey and the EU are increasingly developing.
Ankara applied for the EU membership in 1987, and negotiations on Turkey’s accession started in 2005.
Since then, the parties have agreed on 14 out of 35 technical points that Ankara must fulfill to achieve the standards required for EU membership.
In January 2015, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said that his country is no longer interested in the EU accession.
The same year only 20 percent of Turkish population wanted the country to join the EU compared to 75 percent previously. Hmmm.....I said it before and i'll say it again the EU politicians would sell any human right for a profit.
