Turkey is not getting away with not recognising an EU member state, EPP President Joseph Daul has told CNA in an interview, pointing out that the resolution of the Cyprus problem stands between Turkey and its European aspirations. 

Joseph Daul, the President of the European Peoples Party (EPP, the political family that includes both German CDU/CSU and Austrian APP) renews a call on Turkey "to facilitate a climate conducive to free negotiations, and to contribute concretely to the ongoing efforts for a settlement, including by withdrawing Turkish forces", following intensive discussions in the framework of the EPP on Turkey`s future EU bid.

"Turkey is not getting away with not recognising an EU member state, Cyprus," he stressed.
