“These are, of course, internal European affairs. It is very important for us that all these processes do not bring us more problems,” the Kremlin press office´s head noted on the subject.
“It is important that these processes do not lead to further deterioration of our relations with the EU, because it is very difficult to damage them more than they already are,” he stressed.
Peskov recalled that more than 20 years ago he worked as a diplomat in Turkey, when that country became a candidate for EU membership.
“It was also ready to give up a lot to become an organic part of Europe, to get out of the gray zone and become that very organic part in the union of Europe and Asia,” he said.
He stressed that Ankara did not advance beyond that candidacy, however it remained a sovereign and independent country.
