Turkey says the EU needs fairer system

The European Union must preserve its solidarity and come up with a fairer system as its economic problems are only temporary, Turkish Deputy Prime Minister Ali Babacan said at an informal meeting of EU leaders.

“What makes the EU significant for us [Turkey] are the values and ideas it defends. I think the economic problems are temporary,” Babacan told reporters on his way to the venue of the meeting, a mountain chalet in the Finnish ski resort town of Saariselka.

He said the important issue was to preserve solidarity and come up with a fairer system for countries, particularly the ones using the single currency, to be able to act in the same framework regarding fiscal issues or banking schemes.
