Subject: EU leaders’ reception by Turkey’s President
Despite Turkey’s aggressive conduct, Commission President Ursula von der Leyen and Council President Charles Michel visited Turkish President Erdoğan in Ankara.
- Why does the Commission insist on continuing economic cooperation with Turkey when Turkey breaks international law and abuses human rights?
- Should diplomatic ties be maintained with the Turkish President despite his undiplomatic behaviour, which was clearly aimed at openly humiliating the Commission President?
