Accession to EU could undermine Turkey’s sovereignty

Haqiqatpour said on Friday, “Turkey must not trade its sovereignty for membership in the European Union.”

The Iranian lawmaker made the comment in reference to recent remarks by German Chancellor Angela Merkel about Turkey’s accession to the EU.

 “Turkey must find its own indigenous model of development and it should not appeal for the West’s help for attaining progress, because that undermines the dignity of the Turkish nation,” Haqiqatpour said.

“For years, the Turkish government has gone to any lengths by adopting numerous initiatives, applying constant changes to its economic laws and trying to adapt itself to the liberal-democracy culture.”

“When the Europeans witness Turkey’s passion for accession to the EU, they easily impose any kind of law on the country which ensures the West’s interests and inflicts damage to the Turkish economy and culture,” the Iranian lawmaker pointed out.

He alluded to the exacerbating economic crisis across the EU, including in Greece, Spain, Portugal and Italy and said, “By witnessing the conditions of these countries, Turkey must conclude that membership in this bankrupt union will worsen the country’s condition instead of improving it.”
