  • [01] FM spokesman welcomes reforms inTurkey, calls for their speeding up

    04/08/2002 22:33:20

    Foreign ministry spokesman Panayotis Beglitis, referring to the recent adoption by the Turkish National Assembly of legislative reforms, said in a stement on Sunday that ''Greece firmly supports Turkey's European orientation, in accordance with the decisions of the (EU) European Council in Helsinki.''

    ''The adoption by the Turkish National Assembly of legislative reforms constitutes a positive step in the direction of the full implementation of the political and economic criteria of Copenhagen and of the Helsinki decisions,'' the spokesman added.

    ''The European Union and the member-states are awaiting the speeding up of the changes and the implementation of the acquis communautaire, as these are set out in the text of the partner relationship.

    ''At the same time, we are closely observing the practice of the Turkish authorities towards the self-ruled institutions of the Greek minority in Istanbul. This practice, which contravenes international treaties, will be assessed by the European Union within the context of the assessment procedure of the Turkish candidacy.''
