Bozkır: “EP resolution has no validity for us”

Bozkır made evaluation during a reception was held before the voting of the EP resolution, containing also the issues concerning the activities of Turkish seismic research vessel Barbaros Hayreddin Pasa, at the General Council.
Stating that the incorrectness of the resolution was expressed during the meetings with High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Federica Mogherini and European Commissioner for European Neighbourhood Policy and Enlargement Negotiations Johannes Hahn in Brussels, Bozkır said “In the nature of things, this decision will end up like the similar resolutions issued before. It has no validity for us. After this resolution is accepted and delivered to our permanent representative in Brussels, it will be sent back. Now it has no importance”.
