Turkey has put on record its objections to any permanent restrictions the European Union may impose in the future on the free movement of Turkish nationals in the bloc, the foreign ministry said Tuesday. In a formal note sent to Brussels on December 23, Turkey 'reiterated its position that (the EU) should not expect our acceptance of exceptional measures whose duration and scope are not subject to limits ... that were proposed in the conclusions of the December 17 summit,' the statement said. It stressed that the Union's legislation and basic philosophy allowed only for temporary restrictions. "
