“Turkey will not be accepted into the European Union in the coming decades, even if they fulfill all the requirements of the European Commission. Against joining the EU is the European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker, as well as individual countries — members of the Association,” write “Izvestia”, citing a source in European foreign policy circles.
Russia’s permanent representative to the EU Vladimir Chizhov said that the chances of joining the organization shortly have no country.
“No one has a chance of joining the EU in the coming years, he said. – European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker on this account has been fairly unequivocal, stating that during his mandate no expansion of the EU will not. And the mandate from him until 2019. Element “rasshirennoi fatigue”, as they say, is obvious. The European Union has not yet digested those whom he has adopted in previous waves of expansion.”
In turn, the Turkish authorities would like to become an EU member by 2023. This was stated by permanent representative to the EU Selim Inel.
