(zaman.com) - Turkish Foreign Minister Abdullah Gul objected to claims that Turkeys reform process slowed down adding: Our government is aware that we have been given our final chance. We will benefit from this opportunity and introduce the 9th reform package before the Turkish parliament adjourns for the holidays.

Gul shared his assessments in an interview with AKP Bulletin of Turkey magazine about their plans to open a European Union (EU) channel and added Our initial aim is to establish an EU channel by taking advantage of the state owned Turkish Radio and Television, TRT. The channel will broadcast our plans for the EU, the latest developments and enlighten the nation about the EU and Turkeys membership progress.
