Finland Strongly Supports Turkey's EU Membership
The state visit to Turkey by President Tarja Halonen said Finland strongly supports Turkey’s EU membership, says Yle. According to Halonen, however, what is more important than the timetable is “what kind of marriage, namely the relationship between Turkey and the EU there will be”.
During the official visit to Turkey, President Halonen will meet with President Abdullah Gül. In addition to prospects for the talks on bilateral relations and Turkey’s EU membership negotiations, they will focus in the Middle East and North Africa region, ongoing change and sustainable development.
