Turkey is unlikely to have willing to be EU member: president
Turkey is likely to refuse from EU membership in future, Turkish President Abdullah Gul said at a news conference held during his visit to France, the Turkish IHLAS news agency said.
"Turkey is unlikely to have willing to be EU member in future. Perhaps, it will follow Norway's way," Gul said.
The EU-Turkey relations and cooperation began with signing of the treaty in Ankara in 1964. Despite EU-Turkey relations were cool after signing the treaty, but the contract maintained its status. Today's convergence of Turkey and the EU should be appreciated as a historic chance.
During discussion on Norway's joining the EU, citizens of this country opposed joining this organization.
As a result, despite the fact that Norway complies with European standards, it refused from EU membership.
