MANY FRENCH ARE SCEPTICAL ABOUT TURKEY’S EU BID ACCORDING TO A
POLL BY CSA PUBLISHED
YEREVAN, FEBRUARY 18. ARMINFO. Influential Armenian lobby of France
is against Turkey’s accession to the European Union.
French journal Valeurs Actuelles reports, in December, the EU agreed
to begin accession talks with Turkey on Oct. 3, 2005. The EU with this
decision confirmed that Turkey has fulfilled all the requirements
for full-membership including democratization, human rights and
economy. Similarly the racist and anti-Muslim French groups claim
that Turkey is a Muslim country and there is no place in the EU for
the Muslims. Religionist groups in many European countries defend
that the EU is a civilazation project and Christianity is one of the
most important columns.
