Italian ambassador: EU needs Turkey more than Turkey needs it

Italian Ambassador to Ankara Carlo Marsili said Europe can only be a global actor with Turkey’s membership.

In an interview with Star daily, Marsili stated, “A person only needs to spend 48 hours in Turkey to understand that the historic prejudices in Europe are baseless.” He added, “Europe does not have the luxury of giving up Turkey. Even Turkey’s candidacy has contributed a lot to the Union. The EU needs Turkey more than Turkey needs it.”
