The Foreign Ministry issued a written statement regarding the decisions taken at the summit of EU heads of state and government held in Brussels yesterday.

“The decisions adopted under the title of ‘Turkey’ at the summit of EU heads of state and government fall far short of the measures expected and necessary.” In the statement, it was stressed that Turkey has more than fulfilled its responsibilities in terms of reducing tensions and establishing dialogue and cooperation.

The written statement of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs included the following statements;

“The decisions adopted under the title of ‘Turkey’ at the summit of heads of state and government of the European Union (EU) held in Brussels on June 24, 2021 are far from containing the expected and necessary steps .

Turkey has more than fulfilled its responsibilities in terms of reducing tensions and establishing dialogue and cooperation. The recognition by the EU that the tension has subsided and the postponement of taking concrete decisions to implement the positive agenda, including the update of the customs union, is seen as a delaying tactic, a lack of will and abuse of EU membership by one or two Member States. Avoiding the reference to our candidacy status in the text also confirms this view.

Rather than offering a dialogue on the rule of law and fundamental rights, the EU will pave the way for the accession negotiations and lay the foundations for our country’s faster progress in the 23rd and 24th chapters.

The proposed new financial aid package is aimed at Syrian refugees, not Turkey, and is essentially a measure to be taken to ensure EU peace and security. Reducing migration cooperation to a simple financial dimension is a serious mistake. Aiming for close cooperation in this area would be beneficial for all.

The Cyprus-related parts of the summit resolutions are, as usual, a repetition of the views of the Greek / Greek duo. With this attitude, the EU has once again ignored the Turkish Cypriots and their equal rights. As long as this attitude of the EU continues, it is not possible to make a constructive contribution to the Cyprus issue. On this occasion, we again invite the EU to see the realities of the island, to recognize the Turkish Cypriots and their acquired equal rights, and to keep the promises made in 2004.

What is needed to maintain the positive momentum obtained and to advance Turkey-EU relations through the “positive agenda” in the perspective of accession, is to review the March 18 agreement in all its aspects. aspects and with a comprehensive understanding and make it operational in a way that meets the needs of the day and common interests. ‘
