"As long as Turkey demonstrates this aggressive behavior, we must also talk about consequences, including economic consequences," said the leader of the conservative EPP Group, Manfred Weber (CSU), on Tuesday in the Strasbourg EU Parliament. It could be used, for example, for access to the European internal market for Turkey and its membership in the customs union.
