Prof. Dr. Mustafa Şentop, Speaker of the GNAT has stated that “The 2018 Turkey Report is a resolution that has been put together under the guidance of racist and extremist politicians in the EP”.
Şentop, who is in Rabat, the capital city of Morocco to attend the 14th Conference of Parliamentary Union of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (PUIC) has expressed his reviews to the AA correspondent regarding the “2018 Turkey Report” adopted in the EP.
Şentop stated that the resolution of EU is not apprehensible; whereas it is utterly based on prejudiced, unjust and baseless reasons.
Şentop emphasized that the aforementioned resolution was prepared under the guidance of racist and extremist politicians in the EP and added:
“Turkey has showed its sincerity and commitment to reach its goal during the EU membership process. The adoption of such a resolution just before the beginning of the negotiations is also rather distressing for EU.
Soon the EP will be renewed through elections. EU is fundamentally in a very serious crisis. First of all, it has an identity crisis. It has not yet decided what had happened or what is ahead. EU has been seriously damaged within its political scope after the decision of the United Kingdom to leave the EU. I find EU’s efforts to create itself a space through showing hostility against Turkey rather interesting, especially during such a process.”
Şentop pointed out that Turkey is a country who is influential both in Europe and the world, and that it will continue to proceed with great determination.
