Soini in Brussels: We have to deal with Turkey


Finnish Minister for Foreign Affairs Timo Soini said on Monday that the EU must continue dealing with Turkey. Austria and the European Parliament have proposed freezing EU membership negotiations with Turkey because of the Turkish government’s actions against the press and the opposition after the failed July coup. Soini says during his recent visit in Ankara he emphasised that there are two possible directions for Turkey to take – Europe or the Middle East – and that the EU would like the country to come their way.
