EU-Turkey relations at breaking point! EP Freezes Turkey Accession Talks!

0

Amid an intensifying crackdown by President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, MEPs are calling for a temporary freeze of membership talks between EU and Turkey.

European Parliament voted a temporary freeze on EU accession talks with Turkey.

“Turkey is an important partner of the EU”, say MEPs.
“But in partnerships, the will to cooperate has to be two-sided. Turkey is not showing this political will as the government’s actions are further diverting Turkey from its European path”, they add.

A temporary halt of the negotiations would entail that no new negotiating chapters be opened and no new initiatives be taken in relation to Turkey’s EU Negotiation Framework.
