President Emmanuel Macron called for cooperation and open dialogue to discuss Turkey's European Union membership during his Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s visit to Paris on Friday.

Axar.az reports citing Turkish media.

Speaking at a joint news conference with Erdogan, Macron said “two-facedness” in Turkey-EU ties should come to an end.

He said France believes that Turkey's future should be in Europe.

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

It became eligible for EU membership in 1997 and accession talks began in 2005. To gain membership, Turkey has to successfully conclude negotiations with the EU in 35 policy chapters that involve reforms and the adoption of European standards.

The French president also said Turkey and France would continue to fight against terrorism and terror groups such as the PKK and Daesh.

Erdogan arrived in Paris early Friday for a day-long visit.

During his stay, the Turkish president held a private meeting with his French counterpart at the Elysee Palace.

Economic cooperation, bilateral trade, defense industry, counterterrorism and regional issues are being discussed during the two leaders' talks as well as ties between Turkey and France.
