Re: 2007-2013 EU budget - reservations emerge, Flash News, October 12
I totally agree with foreign minister Kukan. If Turkey is accepted as a country that could be a member of the EU and they live up to the conditions, then they can become a member. The question here is, can a country like Turkey be considered a possible member? We also have to consider Russia and other countries near Europe. Do they belong to Europe, or should we change the name of the EU?
That, I believe, is the fundamental question we have to ask. Not whether a country like Turkey has a different culture or religion.
