For the conclusions of the European Councilthe Turkish Ministry of Foreign Affairs stated in a statement, stressing that “they are another example of the EU's lack of strategic vision for Turkey and global developments”. At the same time, he clarified that “Turkey will never accept an approach that links progress in Turkey-EU relations with the Cyprus issue

As the Ministry states in its written statement, “it is contradictory that the Council did not take any decision on the recommendations of the Joint Communication on EU-Turkey relations prepared by High Representative Borel and the Commission, although Council conclusions emphasize that the EU has a strategic interest in developing a cooperative and mutually beneficial relationship with Turkey”.

At the same time he points out that “Turkey will never accept a approach that links progress in Turkey-EU relations with the Cyprus issue. It is necessary to abandon a perception that limits these multidimensional relations to the Cyprus issue. This mentality cannot contribute positively and constructively either to the problem or to other regional and global issues”. the selective limitation of bilateral cooperation in certain areas. In the coming period, we will review our dialogue with the EU on the basis of reciprocity, taking into account the pace, level and scope of the EU's steps towards Turkey.”
