German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier rejected the idea of Austrian Chancellor Christian Kern on the termination of negotiations on Turkey's membership in the EU, reports DW.
"I'm afraid the problem, in front of which we stand now is more than the question of whether, when, how and at what rate will be held negotiations on membership (with Turkey in the EU, - Ed.)", - Said Steinmeier in Vaduke where he met with the foreign ministers of the German-speaking countries, quoted by Reuters.
Minister of Foreign Affairs of Luxembourg Jean Asselborn supported Steinmeier's position. But the Austrian Minister Sebastian Kurz said that he "clearly does not see" any simplification of a visa regime for Turkey, and no acceleration of the accession process of EU membership.
