Turkey will on Tuesday receive the European Commission’s most critical report since it launched its bid to join the European Union over a decade ago, with Brussels warning that years of progress towards membership were being lost, officials said on Saturday.



Politico adds:  Brussels wants Turkey to put “an end to the state of emergency, without any delay.” The government’s resort to “excessive measures” since the coup, including mass dismissals and arrests, continue to cause “serious worries,” according to excerpts from the report.
