‘EU failed us, Turkey doesn’t need it anymore,’ says Erdogan

‘EU failed us, Turkey doesn’t need it anymore,’ says Erdogan.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan says that his country has outgrown its need for EU membership over the course of rocky 12-year accession talks. Recep Tayyip Erdogan also accused Europe of harboring terrorists. …

Negotiations have stalled over concerns of welcoming what would be the EU’s most populous country within the decade, one of its poorest and the only Muslim-majority nation in the bloc. …

On Sunday Erdogan blamed the EU for providing shelter to those who seek to undermine his rule, including so-called Gulenists and independence-seeking Kurds.

“The EU failed us in a fight against terrorism,” declared Erdogan.

Culturally incompatible, now that it is ruled again by Islamists?
