Turkey Rapporteur Piri: 'All our red lines are crossed'
After a recent visit to Turkey, Rapporteur of the European Parliament, Kati Piri, prepared her report. ''With the full implementation of the constitutional amendments, which legitimizes an all-powerful presidency with powers to personally appoint or dismiss ministers, select judges, and rule by decree, a red line has been crossed for the European Parliament,'' is one of her gloomy conclusions.
In short, the EU membership perspective for Turkey looks bleaker than ever. Is it the end of the road?
Does the EU still have the will and leverages to keep Turkey anchored?
Ahval Editor Yavuz Baydar spoke to Kati Piri about the prospects at a critical juncture.
