The European Union should begin negotiations with Turkey once more, stated German Foreign Minister Guido Westerwelle. He added that no time should be lost in recommencing talks otherwise Turkey would lose interest in the union.

“We, the Europeans, should open chapters to negotiations with Turkey in the first half of 2013. Otherwise, in the upcoming term, our interest in Turkey may be greater than Turkey’s interest in us,” Westerwelle said.

“Turkey’s demands to receive fair treatment, confidence and respect in negotiations were all justified,” he said. “Turkey has written a breathtaking success story in the past decade, developments indicate that Turkey could be a bridge between Europe’s Muslim neighbours and the EU”, Westerwelle stated.
