    President Abdullah Gül devoted a large part of a 40-minute talk with the visiting French Foreign Minister Bernard Kouchner to rebutting French President Nicholas Sarkozy’s criticism of Turkey’s EU bid.

    In response to Sarkozy’s claim that Turkey is geographically not part of the EU, President Gül unfolded a map, showing that EU-member Cyprus is further east than most of Turkey.

    Gül also questioned Sarkozy’s view that EU states don't want Turkey in the club,referring to a survey of the EU public which showed that 30% believe that Turkey is already a full member of the union.
