VVD to campaign against Turkey in Europe

The right-wing Liberals (VVD) are to make a 10-year moratorium on Turkish membership of the European Union a mainstay of the party’s campaign for next year’s European parliament elections.

The draft manifesto, drawn up by former European commissioner Frits Bolkestein, also includes a ban on the free movement of Turkish people within Europe if the country gets membership.
