Erdogan: Turkey exhausted of European Union membership process

After meeting this Friday with Emmanuel Macron in Elysium, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, has gone quickly and nearly without ceremonial of French presidential palace.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan today said that a strong partnership between Ankara and Paris was vital for world peace.

The Turkish president's trip to France in a bid to win the support of France for relaunching the accession process is his first since a failed coup in Turkey on July 2016. CGTN's Kevin Ozebek reports on a cordial meeting with deep divides. Not even with signing of a number of trade agreements with press, including one on an air and anti-missile defence system and anor for which Turkish Airlines is committed to acquiring 25 A350 aircraft from European Airbus Consortium. "There are also gardeners of terrorism". These gardeners are those seen as "thinkers".

Tayyip Erdogan denounced U.S. justice on Friday and suggested Turkey could rethink some bilateral agreements with Washington, after a USA court convicted a Turkish banker in a trial that included testimony of corruption by top Turkish officials.

The EU's reluctance to accept Turkey's accession to the bloc has exhausted the Turkish public, Erdoğan said, adding that he is drawing attention to the issue from within EU borders, like in France.

The current process "does not allow for an outcome in the coming years", Macron said during a joint news conference with Erdogan, adding that he thought stringing Turkey along was hypocritical.

Turkey blames Gulen for the 2016 failed coup and accuses him of running a group called the Fethullah Terror Organisation (FETO). In the aftermath, he considered bringing back the death penalty, locked up tens of thousands of people, and further cracked down on press freedom.

RSF held a spontaneous protest at the Turkish Embassy in Paris over Erdogan's visit. Many have protested they are innocent. "Now they are in prison", said Erdogan icily. Let's just say don't bet that these two will serve out their full jail term.

Turkey first applied for membership in the European Economic Community, a precursor to the EU, in 1987.

They disagree on human rights but analysts said these neighbors need each other.

Macron had pledged to raise human rights concerns ahead of Erdogan's visit, one of only a handful he has made to Europe as relations with the West soured in the wake of the post-coup crackdown.

The fact that Erodgan came to Paris to meet with Macron showed the growing influence of France.

Regional issues like ongoing efforts to find a political settlement to Syrian civil war and the USA move to recognize Jerusalem as the "undivided" capital of Israel were also discussed by the two presidents, Macron said, noting that he has "observed clearly that we share joint positions on many of these issues".
