Sweden Rejects Austrian Move to Block Turkey

Published måndag 3 oktober 2005 kl 11.24

Sweden has rejected Austria’s attempt to block Turkey’s membership talks with the European Union.

EU Foreign ministers spent eight hours Sunday trying to get Austria to withdraw its demand that associate membership be an alternative. Commenting on the discussions, Swedish Foreign Minister Laila Freivalds said there was very little movement, adding that Austria will have to withdraw their demands.

In an interview with Swedish Radio News, Frievalds called the Austrian position strange, since it is obvious the aim of the talks is Turkish membership in the EU. Talking to the TT news agency the foreign minister said there are 24 countries against 1 here, and she thinks the one standing alone should listen to what the rest have to say.
