Commenting article: Turkish PM Warns Brussels: Alternatives to EU Exist

Turkish Prime Minister Binali Y?ld?r?m has warned the European Union not to forget that Turkey has alternatives to the bloc.

Relations between the EU and Turkey have been strained lately. “Turkey has alternatives to Europe – being too modest may destroy love relationships,” stated the PM at a party conference of the ruling Justice and Development Party, without specifying what Turkey’s alternatives are.

The process of accession of turkey to the EU started in the 1960’s but official negotiations began in 2005. A mere 16 out of 35 chapters of the negotiations have been opened so far.
