Cavusoglu predicts Turkey-EU summit

Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu on Tuesday said a Turkey-EU summit was expected to be convened but added no date had been decided, Anadolu agency reports.

Speaking in live TV interview with Turkey’s A Haber news channel, Cavusoglu said the date of "a big summit" would be determined after talks with EU officials at an upcoming NATO meeting on May 24-25 in Brussels.

Cavusoglu said some EU leaders had demanded a meeting with President Recep Tayyip Erdogan at the NATO summit. He also said some European governments had admitted they had been wrong on Turkey.

The minister said: "They understood that they were making a mistake. Some foreign ministers even asked me in Malta: 'What should we do to correct our mistakes?'"

He said Turkey had no problems with common European values "as these are our values as well”.

“The only problem is the EU's approach,” he added.
