“Turkey has continued to move further away from the European Union, therefore negotiations have come to a standstill,” ONAreports citing the annual report of the European Commission on EU enlargement policy.

“Turkey has continued to move further away from the European Union, with serious backsliding in the areas of the rule of law and fundamental rights and through the weakening of effective checks and balances in the political system, brought forward by the entry into force of the constitutional amendment” – the annual report reads.

Also, it was said that Turkey is a key partner for the EU and a candidate country. “Dialogue and cooperation, including at highest level, in essential areas of joint interest, have continued, including through effective cooperation on migration and support to refugees."
