Turkey's EU Minister Egemen Bagis said that Turkey's EU membership process was more important than its result.
This process is important for us being a more democratic, transparent and prosper country, Bagis told reporters before he left for Croatia where he will attend celebrations for Croatia's joining the EU.
Bagis, who congratulated Croatia, said that Turkey's EU membership had been delayed with political reasons.
Noting that Turkey, when it joined the EU, would be one of the biggest and most important countries of Europe, Bagis said that some circles in Europe were concerned about this.
Turkey is determined about EU reforms, he added.
Bagis said that Croatia grew its economy 34 percent in the last eight years, and expressed hope that this figure would reach 50-60 percent in long-term because a strong Croatia meant stability in Balkans.
