Austrian Chancellor Urges to Stop Talks on Turkey's EU Accession

Daily Express

Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurz condemned the human rights violations in Turkey and called on Brussels to end the EU accession talks with Ankara, Sputniknews.com reports.

"The talks on membership between the European Union and Turkey should be ended taking into account the system systematic violations of human rights and essential democratic values, and because the Copenhagen Criteria (rules defining if the state is ready to join the European Union) are not implemented anymore," Kurz said.

The Austrian politician added that Turkey was still an important partner of the European Union and the ties between Ankara and Brussels should be maintained based on the policy of good neighborliness.
