Although EU-Turkey relations have improved slightly recently, MEPs are worried about the continued deterioration of fundamental rights and rule of law in the country. MEPs are also expected to welcome Turkey’s willingness to act as a mediator in the Russian war against Ukraine and to stress that it is vitally important that the EU and Turkey cooperate well on foreign and security policy. MEPs raise the issue of Turkey’s president being opposed to Finland and Sweden’s accession to NATO. Closing statements by Nacho SÁNCHEZ AMOR (S&D, ES), rapporteur and Olivier VARHELYI, European Commissioner for Neighbourhood and Enlargement.
