Opening of negotiations with Turkey - Additional Protocol to the EEC-Turkey Association Agreement
MPphoto
 
 

  Philip Claeys (NI). – (NL) Mr President, there is every indication that Turkey will accede whatever the cost, but as the EU/Turkey Civic Commission demonstrated recently, Turkey does not meet the Copenhagen criteria, yet the Commission and Council claim otherwise. They know very well what goes on. Commissioner Rehn referred a moment ago to the persecution of the author Orhan Pamuk, and they express their concern every time something happens, but when it comes down to it, they do nothing about it.

When should Turkey recognise all Member States? What is the timetable for opening the Turkish airports and seaports? People suggest during the negotiation process, so in ten years time or so, possibly, for we will of course have made so much progress that we will be unable to back-pedal, even if Turkey does not meet the conditions. That is the salami solution: decisions are taken in small chunks and before we know it, we are facing a fait accompli. The only argument we keep hearing prior to Turkey’s accession is the promise that is being made to the Turks. What about the promise that Turkey must meet conditions? In fact, when will we ask the public what they think about the accession of a non-European country that has no place in the European Union?
