Commentary feature. The Foreign Ministers of the United Kingdom and Finland write: When European Union foreign ministers meet in Brussels this weekend, we will both be calling for our counterparts to recognise Turkey’s increasing role and influence on the world stage. The UK and Finland support Turkey’s goal of becoming a member of the EU. But its accession process is moving slowly. We believe the EU should not wait until Turkey joins to benefit from the strength of its relationships. But only by having a seat at the table will Turkey be able to contribute fully to the security and prosperity of the EU’s member states.
