EU - Turkey - 8th Parliamentary term

Turkey has been candidate for EU membership since 1999. Accession negotiations started in 2005.

As a major emerging economy and a member of NATO and G20, Turkey is a key partner for the European Union. It is recognised as an active regional foreign policy player,  with a strategic location, including for the EU's  energy security. The EU is therefore committed to intensify further the  political dialogue with Turkey in particular on foreign policy issues of mutual interest.
