EU official: Turkey completes one third of accession process

The deputy head of the European Delegation in Turkey said that Turkey had already completed one third of accession process with the European Union.

Tibor Varadi said at a conference on "EU-Turkey Relations and Reform Process" hosted by the Association of Industrialists and Businessmen in Aegean Region in the western province of Izmir that the Union did not set a date for Turkey's membership, but Turkey's accession process would be completed.

Varadi said that Turkey had already completed one third of the accession process, adding that a date would emerge automatically as soon as Turkey completed the remaining two thirds of the process.

Denying claims that Turkey faced a double-standard in the accession process, Varadi said that there were "no differences" between processes for the other countries and the process for Turkey.
