Turkish European Union Minister and Chief Negotiator Egemen Bagis has said that Turkey had changed and so had the EU.
Turkey is sine qua non for EU, Bagis said at a meeting titled "European Perspectives For Turkish Foreign Policy" organized by Foundation of Political, Economic and Social Research (SETA) in Ankara on Thursday, adding that Turkey is lying at the junction for EU.
Egemen Bagis said that Turkey, with its growing economy, became more important for European countries and became a very successful market.
He said that the EU project has been the biggest social change for Turkey.
The Chief Negotiator Bagis said, "Turkey expected to start negotiations on new chapters, and Turkey would never ever give up."
"EU reforms made our country more livable," Bagis noted.
SETA's Foreign Policy Director Talip Kucukcan said, "we have some question marks about Europe's Turkish Foreign Policy."
"Turkey has an objective and rational foreign policy rather than being cultural and ideologic," Kucukcan added.Güncelleme Tarihi: 11 Mayıs 2012, 11:11
