The European Union (EU) must stop talks on the admission of Turkey, TASS reported referring to Manfred Weber, head of the European People’s Party (EPP).

According to Weber, these talks are a historical mistake and did not bring the country closer to the EU. 

As Kathimerini reported, “Turkey is an important partner for Europe, but Turkey’s gunboat diplomacy, the illegal drilling in the Exclusive Economic Zone of Cyprus, the violations of Greek airspace and it’s attacks on the Greek border are not examples of a constructive partnership,” Weber noted at EPP party meeting in the European Parliament.

“On the contrary, the Turkish government’s actions are currently aggravating tensions in the Mediterranean region, putting stability and security in Europe in danger. We must be prepared to do more to protect ourselves against Turkish aggression on our southern borders”, he added.
