New EU chapters to give pace to Turkish reforms

New EU chapters to give pace to Turkish reforms

 

Lawmakers at the European Parliament appear to have prepared the ground for greater détente between Brussels and Ankara that would include the opening of new accession chapters

The European Parliament’s General Assembly adopted a 2012 progress report on Turkey yesterday, providing a potential catalyst for the opening of new accession chapters for Turkey after years of deadlock between Ankara and Brussels.

Members of the European Parliament (MEP) called for the opening of negotiations on the judiciary, fundamental rights and home affairs, while also praising recent talks that could help settle the Kurdish issue.
