Assessment of Turkey’s behaviour by EU and member states is ongoing, Commission spokesperson says

Developments in EU – Turkey relations are under an ongoing assessment happening at several levels, starting from the Council’s working groups and the Ministers of Foreign Affairs, and prospectively at the leader level, according to Peter Stano, the European Commission spokesperson for foreign affairs. Stano was responding to questions by journalists regarding the recent announcement of new surveying missions to be conducted in the Easter Mediterranean by Turkish vessel Oruc Reis.

“It’s up to the EU leaders and the leaders of the MS to make a definitive assessment when the time comes” on the basis of the relevant conclusions of last June’s European Council, Stano said during Monday’s midday briefing in Brussels.
