EU/Turkey Accession Council: extracts from the joint press conference by Dimitrij Rupel, Slovenian Minister for Foreign Affairs and President in office of the Counil, and Ali Babacan, Turkish Minister for Foreign Affairs

62 views

The European Union and Turkey agreed on 17 June 2008 to open two new accession chapters on issues of intellectual property rights and company law. That brings to eight the number of policy areas that Turkey has opened since it began accession talks in 2005. Ali Babacan, Turkish Minister for Foreign Affairs, said that Ankara expected France to treat its hopes for accession to the European Union fairly when it takes over the EU's rotating Presidency on 1 July 2008, and that he hoped that more chapters would be opened during the French Presidency. Ali Babacan regretted that the delays on the opening of some chapters have not always been linked to the Turkish technical readiness, but to other political reasons. He also announced that a new calendar has been fixed to continue the negotiations between Syria and Israel, as both parts seem to be satisfied with the work done so far.
