Britain strongly supports Turkey's membership to the EU, added Cameron who held a joint press conference with Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan in Ankara.
Cameron said that Turkey and Britain could work together in every issue especially Iran and the Middle East. He added that Britain considered Turkey's not making choices between western and eastern world, but preferring both of them was a very right attitude.
Stressing the importance of "strategic partnership" agreement signed between Turkey and Britain, Cameron said that there were great opportunities in economy area, and the two countries were determined to develop their economies.
Regarding Cyprus issue, Cameron said that it was necessary to record progress in this issue this year. Cameron noted that he sometimes met with Greek Cypriot leader Demetris Christofias. He added that Cyprus was an unsolved problem of the EU, and it was a problem before Turkey's EU membership process.
