A Turkish delegation headed by EU Minister Egemen Bağış has met with European Commissioner for Enlargement Stefan Füle in Brussels to request the opening of the 19th chapter on social policies as part of the accession negotiations.

“For the first time in the republic’s history, we stood up behind the commission members with businessmen and workers’ representatives together during the accession process. We have had a very positive meeting on the opening of the 19th chapter,” Bağış told reporters.
