 Subject:  Proposal to make Turkish an official language of the EU
 Answer in writing 

In its resolution of 14 April 2016 on the 2015 report on Turkey, Parliament ‘welcomes the initiative of the President of the Republic of Cyprus, Mr Nicos Anastasiades, to make Turkish an official language of the EU, and urges the parties to accelerate this process’.

1. Can the Commission explain how such an initiative is consistent with the values and founding principles of the EU?

2. Has the Commission carried out a study to estimate the additional cost of Turkish becoming an official language of the EU?

3. Can the Commission explain how such a proposal fits in with its approach to the Cyprus conflict, which has still to be resolved?
