Bulgaria: Vienna Blocks Continuing Negotiations With Turkey BGNES

Austria’s foreign minister Sebastian Kurz has blocked the joint statement of the Council of the European Union for continuing the negotiations on the accession of Turkey to the organisation.

The EU will not open new chapters in the negotiations with Turkey for membership in the EU, announced Vienna.

The Austrian foreign minister expressed his support for freezing the negotiations with Turkey on membership in the EU but most countries are for continuing the dialogue.

In this relation, after the meeting of the Council of the EU at the foreign ministers level, there will be a statement only by Slovakia which is the current chairman of the EU.
