Bagis said in a statement on Wednesday that Barroso played "a pioneering role" in developing and pursuing realistic solution policies for the EU in the last five years.

"Mr. Barroso extended support to the EU's enlargement and Turkey's membership process during his term in office as the president of the European Commission. We will continue working together with the new commission to be formed under leadership of Barroso with the target of full membership," he said.
