Turkey “flabbergasted” by David Cameron’s lies

Don Quixote, Going Postal

A senior Turkish official has accused UK Prime Minister David Cameron of abandoning Ankara in its bid to join the EU as the PM fights his Brexit referendum campaign.

Chief presidential adviser İlnur Çevik said the Cameron’s apparent U-turn had left Turks “flabbergasted,” because Cameron had previously been very supportive of Ankara joining the bloc.

Cameron said in May that Turkey would not become an EU member state “until the year 3000” – a statement which shocked some observers in the country.

The British Embassy in Turkey continues to state on its website: “We have a dedicated team working on projects to improve Turkey’s prospects of joining the EU.”
