Turkey remains an EU membership candidate despite deep concerns over its rights and rule of law record preventing fresh accession talks.

Axar.az reports citing AFP that EU diplomatic chief Federica Mogherini said.

Mogherini however warned that “concrete steps” were needed before there could be any progress on Ankara’s long-stalled candidacy. “Clearly Turkey is and stays a candidate country,” Mogherini said after meeting Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu and EU Affairs Minister Omer Celik in Brussels. The negotiations came to a virtual halt last year as Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan rounded up opponents in a massive crackdown after a failed coup. In December, EU member states agreed that no new accession chapters would be opened until Ankara reversed course.
