Turkish officials urged on Thursday European Parliament's (EP) Turkey rapporteur Nacho Sanchez Amor to visit Turkey while preparing progress reports to avoid subjective and distorted information regarding the country.
Amor, a Spanish politician who took over the post from Kati Piri in late 2019, paid his first official visit to Ankara. Criticizing the EU for being subjective on their progress reports, Turkish officials emphasized the necessity to make on-the-spot examinations during the preparation period of the reports, referring to the weak response by EU countries on the July 15, 2016 coup perpetrated by the Gülenist Terror Group (FETÖ). Amor said that as a Spanish citizen, he knows very well what a military coup means, adding that the U.S. regarded it as an internal issue when a military coup took place in Spain.
Amor conducted bilateral talks with Justice Minister Abdulhamit Gül, Republican People's Party (CHP) leader Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu and Good Party (İP) leader Meral Akşener. Amor was accompanied by the Turkey-EU Joint Parliamentary Committee co-chairman İsmail Emrah Karayel.
