EU delays parliamentary visits to Turkey

imgThe European Union has scrapped a parliamentary visit to Turkey following the Ankara government’s stinging criticism of an EU resolution about the handling of Turkish protests.

European parliamentarian Elmar Brok said that visit of the legislative delegation initially planned for Wednesday, June 19, was postponed following last week’s rebuke and told Turkey that it “should understand how to deal with criticism.”

He said Tuesday he hoped a constructive dialogue would soon be resumed.
