Abadi says Iraq will prevent attacks on Turkey

Abadi says Iraq will prevent attacks on Turkey

"E.U. membership continues to be our strategic target", Erdogan said at Istanbul airport before heading to Bulgaria for talks with European Union President Donald Tusk and European Commission chief Jean-Claude Juncker.

At our meeting in Brussels a year ago we agreed to intensify our dialogue at different levels.

Turkey has condemned actions by the Greek Cyprus government to drill for oil and gas without an agreement that Turkey should receive a share of the revenue.

Turkey will continue to provide medical support to the region, he added.

Mr Erdogan also said that Turkey would do "what is necessary" if the Iraqi operation in Sinjar failed.

Turkish warships have prevented a drillship from carrying out exploratory drilling on behalf of Italian company Eni southeast of Cyprus, in a move that the European Union criticized. "We agreed that we should continue our dialogue in hard circumstances".

President Recep Tayyip Erdogan signalled Turkey has no plans to follow its North Atlantic Treaty Organisation and European Union allies in expelling Russian diplomats following a spy poisoning in Britain blamed on Moscow, in comments published on Wednesday (March 28).

He refuted the comments that the U.S.is "not positive" on selling F-35 aircraft to Turkey if Ankara buys the S-400 missile systems from Russian Federation. Turkey's actions reduced the flow of migrants from millions in 2015 to hundreds of thousands in 2017. "On sensitive issues such as the struggle against terrorism, we don't expect unnecessary criticism but strong support".

"We hope that this summit will open a new door, the relationship will gain a new acceleration", he said.During the summit, several matters relating to Turkey-EU relations, economy, counterterrorism, foreign policy, Palestine, the Balkans, Syria, Iraq and Libya will be discussed. "This should not be turned into a political issue, it should not become an issue that shakes the trust of our people", he said.
