Due to democratic backsliding in Turkey, a large majority in the European Parliament recommended on Wednesday in a non-binding resolution, adopted by 370 votes in favour, 109 against with 143 abstentions, that the European Union formally suspends the current accession negotiations with Turkey.

Rapporteur Kati Piri, a Hungarian-born Dutch Social Democrat MEP said that repeated calls on Turkey to respect fundamental rights had "fallen on deaf ears in Ankara", EUObserver reported.

In its turn, the Turkish Foreign Ministry stated that the recommendation of the European Parliament does not matter for Ankara.
