Turkey has not refused from membership in the EU and the work on joining full EU members is underway, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said.

“The EU must demonstrate a sincere attitude towards Turkey,” President Erdogan added, Trend reports referring to the Turkish media on April 17.

He said that full EU membership is still one of the priorities for Turkey.

The Association Agreement between the EU and Turkey was signed in 1963. Ankara filed an application for EU membership in 1987, but accession negotiations began only in 2005.
