EU gives 12-month calendar to Turkey
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan said the European Union has drawn up a 12-month calendar to push Turkey’s EU membership process ahead, Hurriyet reported on Saturday, Turkish Minute reports.
“They [the EU] have done some work. We received a 12-month calendar from them. We will study this calendar with the Foreign Ministry and the EU Ministry, and take some steps,” Erdoğan told a group of journalists on Thursday while returning to Turkey from a NATO summit in Brussels, where he also met with EU officials.
Erdoğan underlined that not only the issue of visa-free travel of Turks to Europe was on the table, but he also raised the issue of the Red Crescent and Turkey’s Disaster and Emergency Management Agency (AFAD) supports.
