German Foreign Minister: Turkey 'further away from EU membership than ever'

German Foreign Minister: Turkey 'further away from EU membership than ever'Turkey has never been less likely to join the European Union than now and the bloc should seek a special relationship with Britain, German Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel said as relations between Ankara and Berlin hit a low point. “Today Turkey is definitely further away from becoming a member of the European Union than ever before,” Gabriel said in an interview with news magazine Der Spiegel published on Saturday. Before taking power in Germany in 2005, Chancellor Angela Merkel was an outspoken opponent of Turkey’s membership and called for a “privileged partnership”.
