EU should avoid moves to shake Turkey’s stability, says Hungarian foreign minister in Brussels
Brussels, December 13 (MTI) – Europe’s security rests on stability in Turkey, and the EU should avoid “any irrational move” which could compromise that stability or loosen EU-Turkey ties, the Hungarian foreign minister said on Tuesday.
Referring to Austria’s call to suspend talks on Turkey’s EU integration, Péter Szijjártó said the EU had “largely put Europe’s security in Ankara’s hands with the migration agreement”, adding that “anything that could shake Turkey’s stability will be bad for the community”.
Speaking after a meeting of EU European affairs ministers, Szijjarto called for continued dialogue and maintaining the “closest possible cooperation”. He insisted it was important that “ties remain unbroken” with Turkey.
