Turkey expects Belgium to remove EU defects

The spokesman of Turkish Foreign Ministry said on Tuesday that Turkey expected Belgium's rotating EU presidency to remove defects caused by the EU in the following period.

Burak Ozugergin, spokesman of the ministry of foreign affairs, held a press conference and said that the number of chapters which were not opened due to policies of some countries and people was 18. "We expect Belgium's rotating presidency to remove these defects," he said.

Ozugergin said the EU should consider where it wanted to go with Turkey, which regarded EU membership as a strategic goal.

"You don't open chapters and you say Turkey shifted its axis. EU should be consistent. We expect Belgium to be consistent," he said.

Turkey became an EU candidate country in December 1999. The union launched accession talks with Turkey on October 3, 2005.
