  • [01] Barroso meets with Ecumenical Patriarch

    European Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso and EU Enlargement Commissioner Olli Rehn, currently on a visit to Turkey, met with Ecumenical Patriarch Vartholomeos (Bartholemew) in Istanbul on Friday. During the meeting at the Phanar, the Patriarchate's seat, Barroso asked to be informed on the progress made on issues affecting the Ecumenical Patriarchate and the ethnic Greek minority in the country, stressing that the ecumenical nature of the Patriarchate is very significant. Problems faced by the Ecumenical Patriarchate are included in EU reports on Turkey, which assess the progress made in the implementation of reforms and the country's convergence with the European standards. Barroso has called on Ankara to speed up reforms, stressing that Turkey will have to meet all necessary criteria before joining the EU.
