‘I reckon that in such situation, Turkey will not be able to join the EU – neither in the sort-term perspective, nor in more distant future’, Jean-Claude Juncker said in the interview with France 2 TV channel (Interfax-Ukraine).

According to him, ‘if Turkey restores death penalty tomorrow, we will immediately stop the negotiations, since there’s no place in the EU for a country that wields death penalty in its legal arsenal.’
