"One should understand that the deterioration of our relations with the European Union will cause more harm to the European Union itself. For European politics it is vital that at the EU summit the bloc's leaders decide to support Turkey," Kurtulmus said at a press conference in Ankara.
"This resolution is an alarm signal to the European politics," Kurtulmus added.
On November 24, the European Parliament approved an initiative to suspend EU membership talks with Turkey. The initiative was supported by 471 parliamentarians, with 37 votes against and 107 abstentions. However, the vote was non-binding and mostly symbolic, which meant it would not be supported by the European Commission.
The Turkish authorities criticized the document, calling it illegal and even threatening to open borders for migrants willing to go to the European Union.
