Turkish leaders are disappointed by the European Union attitude to the latest developments in the country and believe that the EU Heads do not wish to understand the reasons, Deputy Prime Minister Mehmet Şimşek told at the annual meeting of Yalta European Strategy.
Why hasn’t the EU noticed that Turkey has saved the democracy? Haven’t they seen how people behaved during the attempted coup? Unfortunately, Europe did not want to watch it, he said.
Deputy Prime Minister said that those who came to Turkey and tried to understand the situation changed their attitude.
Turkey wants the EU to be more attentive and objective, said Şimşek.
Mehmet Şimşek said that the EU has been expressing such an attitude toward Turkey for many years. According to the Deputy Prime Minister, this is what has determined the current course of the country.
