Austrian Foreign Ministry supports termination of negotiations with Ankara on joining the EU

Due to the fact that Turkey is increasingly moving away from the European Union, Brussels should take a clearer position in relation to Ankara, reports TASS statement by the head of the Austrian Foreign Ministry, Sebastian Kurtz.

Austrian Foreign Ministry supports termination of negotiations with Ankara on joining the EU


My prediction that this Turkey will increasingly move away from Europe comes true. I will continue to advocate for the termination of EU accession negotiations,
he said in an interview with the German newspaper Welt am Sonntag.

The European Union must finally take a clear stance towards Turkey and, instead of proposing to join the community, strive for orderly cooperation with it. We cannot afford to become dependent on Turkey,
added Kurtz.

According to him, "it is important that the EU itself be able to protect its own external borders."

The diplomat also condemned the “wave of detentions and dismissals in Turkey after the attempted putsch” last year and welcomed the measures against Ankara, which was announced this week by the head of the German Foreign Ministry, Sigmar Gabriel. And "a few weeks ago, he criticized me for my clear position and accused me of populism," said Kurtz.

Gabriel said this week that Germany will review its policy towards Turkey, including in the economic field.

The latest incident, which further aggravated bilateral relations, concerns the detention of six human rights defenders in Turkey, among whom was German citizen Peter Shtoydtner. All of them are accused of assisting terrorist organizations.

    Fuh.Rodili. This lad that was not in the photo yet before the project was before Turkey began to enter Europe. Almost twenty years ago, the Germans boasted about how the Turks were divorced for NATO. But neither in Europe, nor in Europe.

      I will continue to advocate for ending the EU accession negotiations,

      As if they did not have to start negotiations on the conditions for the accession of Austria to Turkey.

      Finally, at least someone honestly spoke about the EU’s true intentions towards Turkey. Why did they lead Turkey 50 years by the nose? belay

    Europe will remember everything in Turkey. And even a huge number of Turks living and working in Germany. And the Turks will remember it in Europe. Indeed, many are already citizens!

    Sebastian Kurtz continues to engage in populism.

    It would be more correct to say: "We cannot afford to become dependent on the policies of Turkish leaders"

    Turkey, and so already 20 years ago, has been driven by the nose ... promises ... associations ... requirements ... BUT Europe does not want to accept them and that's it (despite the fact that lately all the post-Soviet garbage from non-states have been collected there) ... and it’s not even a matter of the conflict over the partition of Cyprus ... or the observance of the "norms" of democracy ... the matter is the difference of cultures ... the EU has not yet accepted a Muslim country ... And NOW THE SIMPLY APPEARED TO OPEN AN OPEN .. .

    And there was nothing to promote the coup. Erdik is not Yanyk. In general, these human rights activists are already very one-sided, like a flounder. They are just right defenders, and left no, no.

    It is reasonable that Turkey puts all the principles on the EU, then there is nothing for it to do.
