Let Turkey into the EU: Erdogan gave Europe an ultimatum




Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan called on European countries to “see the light” and let Turkey join the European Union. He said this at the summit of the countries of South-Eastern Europe in Antalya, the speech was broadcast on his official Twitter.





According to the head of Turkey, without Ankara, the EU will not be able to become “a real center of attraction and power”, and it should get rid of its blindness about this as soon as possible.

In March this year, the High Representative of the European Union (EU) for Foreign Affairs, Josep Borrel, called on the Turkish authorities to abandon their decision to withdraw from the Istanbul Convention on Preventing and Combating Violence against Women.

Turkey withdrew its signature on the relevant document on March 20, while the country's leadership promised to fight for women's rights in accordance with “its traditional values.”

Turkey signed an association agreement with the countries of the European Economic Community in 1963 and applied for membership in 1987. Negotiations on joining the EU began only in 2005 and have since been repeatedly suspended due to disagreements. Brussels stepped up the process in 2016 in exchange for Ankara agreeing to help reduce the influx of migrants to Europe.
