"TURKEY-EU NEGOTIATIONS - PROCESS WITH OPEN DATE WITHOUT GUARANTEES

Despite the fact that Turkey has met almost all the commitments undertaken to the EU, Germany and France have recently refrained from active support to Turkey, what was fortified by Ankara’s violent reaction to the adoption of the Armenian Genocide resolution by the Bundestag.
