Юнкер: Восстановление смертной казни в Турции закроет ей путь в Евросоюз

At the same time, Juncker did not agree with calls now to stop the negotiations with Turkey about accession to the EU. According to him, negotiations can be terminated only because of the reluctance of Ankara to apply European standards.

We will remind, on April 16 will be held a referendum on amending the Constitution.
