British delegation led by Ann Clwyd met Turkish-British Parliamentary Friendship Group Chairman Suat Kiniklioglu, who is also the spokesman of Parliamentary Committee on Foreign Affairs.

Speaking at the meeting, Clywd said that she was involved mainly in human rights issues. She said Turkey still accepts refugees as it did in the past and that she hopes Turkey's treatment to refugees meets standards.

Clywd also said that Turkey plays an important role in its region and supported Turkey's bid to joint the European Union. She said Turkey's full membership would be an advantage for both Turkey and the EU.

Separately, Kiniklioglu said Turkish and British MPs would have the chance to exchange views on Iraq and other developments in the region at their meeting.
