Towards a big break with the EU?
HURRIYET March 22, 2017 SEDAT ERGIN
Whatever the outcome from the polls, all signs indicate that after April 16, relations between Turkey and the EU will enter a new era. We are now in a state where the options ranging from the freezing of negotiations to the implementation of economic sanctions on the EU are beginning to be discussed. We can also say within the EU, the view is “Let us not be the ones who take this step, even if the negotiations are to be frozen, let them take the step.” (...) As a result, to be realistic, we see no positive scenario on the horizon when we look at the future of Turkey-EU relations after April 16.
