Foreign Minister says Turkey talks should be about EU membership

Slovakia disagrees with France's efforts to restrict the borders of the European Union and provide a privileged partnership to Turkey, instead of full membership, Foreign Minister Ján Kubiš said.

Kubiš stressed that EU launched talks with Turkey with the offer of EU membership.

"If Turkey fulfills all conditions, Slovakia is ready to welcome this country as an EU member state," Kubiš said.
