Government Spokesman & Deputy Prime Minister Cemil Cicek said on Monday that, "in case constitutional amendment takes place with the 'yes' votes of our citizens, at the same time some legal and constitutional impediments with respect to Turkey-EU relations would be overcome".
Cicek responded to questions of reporters following Council of Ministers meeting.
Cicek said State Minister & Chief Negotiator for EU talks Egemen Bagis also attended the meeting and gave information about his studies related to EU.
"The constitutional amendment is a very positive arrangement for relations with the EU. A detailed report on this has been submitted," Cicek said.
"When we consider the previous progress reports, we see that the amendments in question meet an important part of Turkey's deficiencies. If Turkey says 'yes' to this constitutional amendment, standards of democracy will be upgraded. There will be many structural, legal and institutional arrangements," Cicek said.
