Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan threatens to hold referendum on bid for EU membership if the EU doesn’t immediately grant Trukey visa-free travel status
SERIOUSLY? Does this Islamofascist wolf in sheep’s clothing actually think that withdrawing its bid for EU membership would somehow constitute a threat to Europe, which was never actually serious about granting membership status to this increasingly radical Muslim nation?
RT Turkey has once again warned it will hold a referendum on whether to press on for EU accession, unless there is progress in negotiations on vise-free travel with the bloc.
“We [get] our power from the nation. If the EU negotiation process [does not move forward], as President Erdogan tried to say, then we may ask the public whether we should continue negotiations,” Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu told a news conference in Ankara on Thursday.
“But we believe that common sense will dominate the meetings,” Cavusoglu added. “We want to continue our way with the EU, especially in the visa-free travel deal, we want something that is our right.” (YOUR right? You have no right to anything in Europe)
On Wednesday, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan threatened the EU, noting that Britain’s Brexit vote could prompt Turkey to hold a referendum on the accession bid. Erdogan’s comments came as the head of the European Commission Jean-Claude Juncker reminded Turkey that in order to join the visa-free regime, Turkey must fulfill all 72 EU-mandated conditions.
“If Erdogan seriously tries to get out of the agreement on refugees, then it will be his job to explain to the Turks why they cannot travel to Europe without a visa,” Juncker said Wednesday in an interview with the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung.
“If Turkey meets all of the 72 conditions for lifting the visa requirement, which we have formulated together, then there will be no reason to refuse their citizen’s visa-free travel,” Juncker added. (But they are no where close to meeting most of the conditions, let alone all 72)
Firing back at Junker, Erdogan once again threatened the EU to unleash a refugee flood, as around three million migrants now live in Turkey.
This is the same schmuck who thinks Muslims discovered America.
