French parliamentarians: Turkey’s accession to EU great mistake
/PanARMENIAN.Net/ 11 parliamentarians of the Union for a Popular Movement (UMP) which is the main French centre-right political party adopted a statement on preventing membership of Turkey in the European Union. “Turkey’s membership will have a negative impact on the EU budget… To preserve the borders and political existence of EU Turkey shouldn’t be accessed to the Union,” the statement says. “71 per cent of French and 66 per cent of German citizens voted against Turkey’s membership in the EU,” it notes. “Turkey bordering on Syria, Iraq and Azerbaijan can not be a member of the European Union. Europe without borders will put an end to European mentality. Turkey’s accession would be a great mistake,” statement sys, APA reports.
