- having regard to the General Affairs Council conclusions on enlargement and stabilisation and association process of 18 June 2019,

- having regard to the Statement by the Spokesperson of the EEAS on the suspensions of elected mayors and detainment of hundreds of people in south-east Turkey of 19 August 2019,
