A message from the Rt Hon Douglas Alexander MP

Shadow Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs

“I am delighted to offer, on behalf of Labour’s foreign affairs team, my congratulations the Centre for Turkey Studies on its second anniversary.

Our team will continue to work, as Labour did in government, to support Turkey’s accession to the EU. Through the work of our Westminster and Brussels’ based team, in partnership with Labour Friends of Turkey, we will continue to push for progress on this front and advance the case for Turkey’s EU membership, as well as advancing a deeper understanding of Turkey and its relationship with the UK.

The Centre for Turkey Studies will provide a very welcome contribution to this ongoing debate and I look forward to having opportunities to work together in the future.

I wish the Centre for Turkey Studies the best of luck in launching this important and significant endeavour.”

Rt Hon Douglas Alexander MP

Shadow Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs
