Chief Negotiator Bağış: Turkey’s road to EU goes through Parliament

Reforms that resulted from new laws and amendments in the Parliament will pave the way to Turkey’s eventual European Union membership, Turkey’s chief EU negotiator, Egemen Bağış, said July 8. “The road to the EU does not pass through some city or some region. The road to the EU goes through the Turkish Parliament.”

EU has said it will review Turkey`s progress toward EU membership by the end of 2009. Turkey has made very little progress on necessary legislated reforms since the 2007 national elections.
