    Answering a question about how Britain can help towards Turkey complying with its EU obligations and also on the initiative of the Finnish EU presidency to be promoted to a successful conclusion, he replied, ``We made clear to Turkey and I said many times in public that we expect Turkey to accept its obligations under EU law. However the conditions under which this will be done is subject to the Finnish presidency proposals that we have been trying to help with.``

    Hoon stressed it is ``important that we find a way through these present difficulties`` and that ``all countries coming into the EU have to accept the basic principles of the Union.``
