ISTANBUL Nike Air Max 90 Ultra SE Vypredaj , Sept. 7 (Xinhua) -- As German Chancellor Angela Merkel announced she would propose to stop Turkey's accession talks at an upcoming EU summit, Turkish analysts are divided over whether the 28-nation bloc would end Turkey's membership negotiations, a prospect that would cost Ankara dearly economically.
Some feel that Merkel would not be able to convince all her EU partners to officially halt negotiations with Turkey.
"I don't think Merkel would be able to get all the 28 EU countries to accept her proposal," Can Baydarol, deputy chairman of the European Union and Global Research Association based in Ankara Nike Air Max 90 Hyperfuse Vypredaj , told Xinhua.
Conceding that Germany is a heavy weight in the union, he added "there are countries and political groups in the EU which do not hold with Merkel's attitude."
Criticizing Ankara for moving away from the rule of law, Merkel said last Sunday that Turkey should not become a full member of the EU.
The German leader called for a joint stance in the EU, as the bloc needs a consensus to officially stop the accession talks.
Ankara applied to join the EU in 1987 and started in 2005 the negotiations for full membership, which have already been stalled over the past couple of years.
Turkey's relations with the EU have turned for the worse particularly after a coup attempt jolted Turkey in July last year Nike Air Max 90 Ultra Moire Vypredaj , following which the Turkish government imposed a state of emergency.
Brussels has frequently criticized Ankara over what it called crackdown on dissidents, growing authoritarianism and violations of the rule of law.
"Merkel may have her way at the EU summit considering that over 40 percent of the EU budget is provided by Germany," Faruk Sen, president of the Turkish European Foundation for Education and Scientific Studies (TAVAK), told Xinhua.
France and Denmark have offered support to Merkel's proposal Nike Air Max 90 Ultra Essential Vypredaj , arguing Turkey is moving away from democracy.
French government spokesperson Christophe Castaner said it is impossible to expect boosted integration with Turkey given the political situation in the country, while Danish Prime Minister Lars Lokke Rasmussen said it is meaningless to continue membership talks with Ankara as it is swiftly drifting away from European values.
Both countries also underlined that dialogue with Turkey should continue.
A statement by EU Foreign Policy Chief Federica Mogherini suggested, however, that the EU may not fully agree with Merkel on the issue.
A day after Merkel's remarks, the EU's top diplomat said the union is continuing to be in dialogue with Turkey Nike Air Max 90 Ultra BR Vypredaj , a candidate country.
Accession talks have their own specific criteria, she added.
"Even if Germany presses hard, there will be many in the EU that will oppose a formal break with Turkey," Faruk Logoglu, a former senior diplomat of Turkey Nike Air Max 90 Leather Vypredaj , told Xinhua.
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan also claimed on Wednesday that some EU countries had started to raise their voices against Merkel's call, saying Germany cannot determine EU policy as it requires a consensus by member states.
Despite Mogherini's remarks, Sen, who previously headed the Essen-based Turkish Research Center when he lived in Germany for years, feels that Berlin could manage at least to have the accession talk freeze.
It is widely argued that Merkel's discourse may well be aimed at getting more votes in the elections to be held in Germany on Sept. 24.
Aversion to Turkey appears to have been on the rise among the German public as well as in some other EU countries as a result largely of the escalating war of words between leaderships.
The German chancellor's reference to the importance of ties with Ankara and the necessity to take a decision by consensus strongly suggests such an inference Nike Air Max 90 Essential Vypredaj , Baydarol maintained.
"No European politician can resist the temptation of Turkey- bashing at the time of elections," stated Logoglu, "Turkish leaders with their equally vehement vilifications of Europeans provide ready fuel for this pointless tug-of-war."
The strain in Ankara-Berlin ties turned into a diplomatic crisis when Germany barred some Turkish cabinet ministers from addressing Turkish expats ahead of a referendum in Turkey in April on expanding the powers of the president.
Erdogan responded by accusing Berlin of adopting Nazism and fascism, which drew a harsh reaction from Germany.
Then in August, the Turkish leader called on Turks living in Germany to vote against Germany's leading parties Nike Air Max 90 Glow Vypredaj , which he described as Turkey's enemies.
The remarks drew sharp criticism from German politicians, who saw them as an intervention in Germany's domestic politics, with Merkel calling them "absolutely unacceptable."
Back in July, the European Parliament voted in favor of a non-binding proposal calling on the EU countries to suspend membership talks with Turkey, should Ankara go ahead with constitutional changes to make way for a presidential system as endorsed in the April referendum.
The amendments have been much criticized at home and abroad for leading to a one-man rule while damaging the separation of powers.
European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker warned in August that suspending the accession talks would be wrong Nike Air Max 90 Damske Vypredaj , taking into consideration the EU's refugee deal with Ankara.
Turkey updated a refugee deal with the EU in March last year to prevent the flow of illegal immigration toward Europe in return for visa-free travel for its citizens, revival of its long-stalled accession talks and financial aid for refugees in Turkey.
The number of illegal migrants being smuggled into Europe via Turkey has fallen sharply as a result.
On Wednesday, Merkel seemed to further stiffen her stance on Turkey's membership talks.
Referring to some German citizens being detained in Turkey, she said there could be no question of continuing membershi At Classic Deals , we know ju.
