New Turkish EU minister says the union should not be concerned over graft probe

New Turkish EU Minister and Chief Negotiator Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu has called on EU not to make “unilateral and impatient statements via media” and urged calm over the events following a major graft probe.

“No one should have any concern about Turkey’s commitment to the principle of rule of law and obligations stemming from the EU accession process,” Çavuşoğlu announced.

The EU has voiced its concern over the government response to recent graft probes that involve high-profile names and relatives of ruling party members.
