The EP voted for the suspension of accession negotiations of Turkey to the EU

MEPs urged to introduce a temporary freeze on negotiations with Turkey on accession to the European Union. The corresponding resolution was adopted on Thursday, November 24. The resolution says that Turkey, however, should remain «attached» to the EU, writes European true.

MEPs also undertake to revise its position when «disproportionate repressive measures» in a state of emergency in Turkey will be abolished.

«Turkey is an important partner for the EU. But the partnership, desire to cooperate must be mutual (…), Turkey does not show such political will, government actions and further reduce Turkey’s European path», said the MEPs.

The suspension of negotiations means that no new Chapter of negotiations can not be opened and will not accept new proposals for talks between Turkey and the EU.

We will remind, in Turkey after the unsuccessful coup attempt was dismissed or fired more than 110 thousand people, including the military, scientists, judges, journalists and Kurdish leaders. About 36 thousand people were arrested.

The EU also warned that the return of the death penalty will stop all negotiations on the accession of Turkey to the European Union.
