3. There are 35 negotiation-chapters for Turkey to become an EU-member. Just 1 has been finished.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Accession_of_Turkey_to_the_European_Union

The negotiations started in 2005.

The first chapter was completed in 2006.

In 2012, Turkey met the benchmarks for 4 more chapters, but they aren't officially closed yet.

Since then, no further progress.

And Erdogan has made clear in 2012 that he wants Turkey to become a EU-member by 2023, to coincide with the 100-year-anniversary of Turkey's founding.




How dare the EU get in the way of his glorious plan?
