Macron on Turkey: No chance of joining EU

  • French President Emmanuel Macron met Turkish leader Recep Tayyip Erdogan. He has told his Turkish counterpart that there is no chance of Turkey to join the European Union. He further said that Turkey should renounce its ambition and rather settle for a looser partnership after his talks. Although Turkey was expecting a warmer response in the talks, but the talks were consumed in the discussion over Turkey's huge crackdown after a 2016 failed coup.
