EU’S FULL MEMBERSHIP AGENDA FOR TURKEY IS OVER

Johannes Hahn who is the European Commissioner for European Neighbourhood Policy and Enlargement Negotiations said “The EU and Turkey should focus on the development of a strategic partnership and not on accession negotiations in the coming years,”. In his interview to Die Welt Hahn said the release of Turkish-German journalist Deniz Yücel does not ease the concerns about the rule of law in Turkey. Hahn mentioned thousands of people who are being held in prisons without any indictment and added that “significant deficits” in the rule of law in Turkey will not be ignored by the EU. Hahn also added that Turkey’s policies to gain sympathy are not enough.
