This week the European Parliament voted to suspend accession talks with Turkey while the state of emergency continues. In response to this decision President Erdogan of Turkey threatened to open the Turkish borders and allow migrants to enter EU. Turkey also threatened to join the Shanghai Pact instead of the EU, despite the fact that it currently exports 2-5% of its goods to the Shanghai Pact member countries, which is hardly comparable to the EU share of 50-60% of Turkey’s total exports.
