Turkish PM says negotiation process for EU bid did not slow down
Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan said on Thursday that Turkey's negotiation process for EU membership did not slow down.

Speaking at the session titled "The Great Game Revisited" within the scope of World Economic Forum (WEF) meeting in Davos, Erdogan said that Turkey was currently on a negotiating member status in the EU.

He added that Turkey's activities on chapter headings were underway, and there was no breakdown in those activities.

Erdogan said that Turkey focused on EU membership process more in 2009, and it appointed a minister who was responsible only from Turkey's relations with the EU. He added that Turkey, from now on, would further develop relations with Brussels and focus on negotiations more.

Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev, Iranian Foreign Minister Manuchehr Motaki and Armenian Foreign Minister Eduard Nalbandian also attended the session.

Nalbandian participated in the session instead of Armenian President Serzh Sargsian.
