Quoted from Anadolu Agency.

Turkish EU Minister Bagis gave an interview to Luxembourg Wort and stated prejudices against Turkish citizens prevented Turkey from having visa exemption.

Turkish Minister of EU Affairs and Chief Negotiator Egemen Bagis has stated that Turkey was the only candidate country the EU applied visa requirements and this problem could only be resolved by overcoming prejudices.

Bagis gave an interview to the Luxembourg Wort newspaper on Wednesday.
"The visa problem wasn´t solved due to the prejudice towards our citizens. Turkey is the only country whose citizens require a visa to travel in the Schengen area. This problem could only be resolved by overcoming prejudices," Bagis said.
Bagis also said, "EU is the biggest peace project in the history of humanity in our opinion. If nations such as Britain and France who were in war with each other can unite under the EU roof, Turkey should also be part of the Union."
Stating that Turkey showed its persistence by waiting 45 years to begin negotiations with EU, Bagis said the EU could be transformed into a global peace project with the inclusion of Turkey. 
Bagis also said that the Cyprus issue wouldn´t pose a problem as it didn´t pose a problem when the Greek Cypriot administration became a member to the EU.

1. Our head may be under the European roof, but our ass sticks way out into Middle East.

2. France and Britain were on the same side in the last two world wars.

Does this Minister know what he is talking about ?

France and Britain

Look at that. AlphaF´s eye was on the ball.

 

The minister must have ment Germany and France. This is the allegory that I have seen being used several times.

These are not important. I think, the important thing is what he meant ? We should be objective for that.
