"Turkey needs to speed up reforms
Euro MPs in the committee on foreign affairs have discussed the report on Turkey's progress towards accession. The Committee used the opportunity to organise an exchange of views on this topic with Commissioner for Enlargement Olli Rehn.
Referring to the Ankara Protocol which provides for the extension of Turkey's Association Agreement with the EU to the ten new member states, including Cyprus, Rehn said that 'if Turkey wants to avoid major problems in the autumn, it must keep its word (...) and comply with the obligations emanating from the Association Agreement and the Accession Partnership. Failure to do so will impact negatively on the negotiations.' "
