Region:World News, Turkey
The EU has cut Turkey’s financial aid by three quarters, DW reported.
The so-called pre-entry aid, which is intended to carry out reforms, was cut in 2020 for Turkey by 75 percent of the previously planned amount. Ankara will receive only 168 million euros under this program, 150 of them are for improvements in democracy and the rule of law, and another 18 million are for villages development, the publications of the Funke media group reported referring to a letter from the EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Josep Borrell.
