BRUSSELS, Belgium (ArmRadio)—“Turkey was vocal in its support for Azerbaijan during clashes in April 2016 in Nagorno-Karabakh,” the European Commission said on November 9 in a report on Turkey.

The report also reminded that the 2009 protocols on normalization of relations with Armenia are not yet ratified.

The 100-page review claimed Turkey had regressed in its eligibility to join the bloc.

The Commission Staff Working Document highlighted a series of problem areas, including the legal situation in Turkey, which it described as being of “grave concern”.

It warned that a range of measures, introduced by Turkish president Recep Tayipp Erdogan following the failed military coup on July 2016 were “not in line with European standards.”

The report slammed Ankara and highlighted “serious allegations of human rights violations” as well as “disproportional use of force” by the security services.

The report added that “the Armenian Patriarchate’s proposal to open a university department for Armenian language and clergy has been pending for several years. Similar demands have been made by different Christian communities who sought to train clergy.”
