The Turkish Foreign Ministry said on Thursday that Turkey was working to open at least one more chapter to negotiations with the European Union (EU).

Spokesperson Burak Ozugergin told a press conference that the ministry, the Secretariat General for the EU, and some other institutions were exerting efforts to open at least one more chapter to negotiations with the EU during the intergovernmental conference to take place in June under the presidency of Spain.

Turkey is a candidate country for EU membership following the Helsinki European Council of December 1999. Accession negotiations started in October 2005 with the analytical examination of the EU legislation.
