President Erdoğan: We can part ways with the European Union if necessary

President Erdoğan said, “During this period in which the European Union has made moves to distance itself from Turkey, we will also assess these developments, and after these assessments, if necessary, we can part ways with the European Union.”

President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan held a press conference at the Atatürk Airport State Guesthouse before his departure to the United States to attend the 78th United Nations General Assembly meetings in New York.

During the press conference, President Erdoğan was asked about his thoughts on the statements regarding Turkey’s accession process to the EU in the 2022 report of the European Parliament. He stated, “Dear friends, if you want my evaluation very clearly, the European Union is making efforts to distance itself from Turkey. During this period in which the European Union has made moves to distance itself from Turkey, we will also assess these developments, and after these assessments, if necessary, we can part ways with the European Union.”
