    [02] LUXEMBOURG PRIME MINISTER AND FOREIGN MINISTER IN TURKEY

    Turkish Prime Minister Mesut Yilmaz and Luxembourg Prime Minister Jean-Claude Juncker held a meeting in Turkey yesterday. "We consider Turkey a European country and we want to make this very visible" Juncker told reporters during a break in nearly three hours of talks with Turkish leaders. Turkey is seeking assurance from the EU that it will not be left behind by eastern European nations in the race for EU membership, due to be decided at a union summit in mid-December. "We expressed in a very concrete way our minimum expectations from this summit" Prime Minister Yilmaz said. The EU's term-presidency which will pass to Britain in January is presently held by Luxembourg, also presented at the talks by Foreign Minister Jacques Poos.

    "I hope a formula that will meet our minimum expectations and achieve a consensus within the EU can be formulated before the summit in December" Yilmaz told reporters. He added that they had clearly conveyed Turkey's uncompromising stand to the holders of the term presidency. "We will continue to have close contacts with Turkey until the summit meeting" Luxembourg's Prime Minister Juncker told reporters. Meanwhile, British Foreign Secretary Robin Cook said on Wednesday that the European Conference, planned by Britain soon after it takes over the EU presidency in January, must include Turkey. Cook said that of the other EU members, Germany had withdrawn its opposition to Turkey's attendance to the conference, planned for February, and only Greece remained opposed to the idea. /All papers/
