Turkey strives to join EU despite double standards - Erdogan

Despite the double standard it faces, as well as numerous obstacles, Turkey is still resolved to work to become a European Union member country, country's President Recep Tayyip Erdogan stated on Sunday.

Erdogan asserted in a statement that the EU's power depends on Turkey's support to a significant extent, adding that Brussels "needs new approaches and structural transformations."

Turkey applied to join the EU in 1987, while the negotiation process between Ankara and the bloc started in 2005.
