Turkey opposes Ursula Plassnik’s candidacy for OSCE

Turkey says it opposes the candidacy of Austria’s former foreign minister to become the next secretary general of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe.

Turkey’s foreign ministry said Saturday it can’t support Ursula Plassnik because she opposes Turkey’s bid to become a full member of the European Union.

Plassnik said in 2008 that Turkey should consider a tie-up with the EU short of full membership.
