Romanian President says EU must send positive signals to Turkey

Romanian President Traian Basescu has said the EU needs to send positive signals to Turkey, stressing that the EU candidate country brings an important contribution to the EU’s wider neighborhood, including the Middle East and North Africa.

“Turkey brings an important contribution and is an important actor in the union’s wider neighborhood, playing an active role in this year’s events in the Middle East and Northern Africa,” Basescu noted, adding that he welcomes the European Commission’s proposal for a positive agenda of priorities with Ankara, recently endorsed by the European Council, which envisages boosting the current negotiation process with Turkey in areas of common interest.
