Babacan: "We are doing reforms for the Turkish people"

There has been no slowdown or reluctance in Turkey 's European Union accession reforms, said Foreign Minister and chief negotiator for Turkey 's European Union talks Ali Babacan in Helsinki , Finland yesterday. Meeting with his Finnish counterpart, Babacan and Alexander Stubb spoke about bilateral relations, Turkey 's EU process and the fight against the terrorist PKK. At a joint press conference afterwards, Babacan said that Turkey wasn't lagging on its EU bid and reforms, and added, " Turkey has made many reforms and stays in contact with the EU Commission about these reforms." Stressing that the reforms are for the Turkish people, he added, "If the EU asks us for a firm timetable timing for the reforms, it should do the same for Turkey 's EU membership." For his part, Stubb said that aim of the negotiating process is Turkey 's full EU membership, expressing his hope that Turkey will join the EU at the end of the process.
