Austria will turn its back on the crumbling European Union if Turkey is successful in its controversial bid for membership, the country’s anti-immigration party leader has vowed.
Far-right party leader Norbert Hofer said Turkey joining the bloc could be the game changer that forces Austrians to call for an EU referendum in a bid to break away, reports the Express.
He said: “I believe that people are able to learn, that political structures are able to develop, and that Austria will contribute to making Europe better.
“There is one exception, however, that is if the EU decides to let Turkey join the Union. Austrians will have to be asked whether they want this.”
His remarks come amid fresh discussions between Turkey and EU bigwigs after Ankara demanded an acceleration on its application in return for taking back migrants seeking asylum in Europe.
The European powerhouse and Turkey have been locked in a high-stakes standoff over Ankara’s refusal to reform its strict terror laws in return for visa-free travel and £2.5billion to clamp down on the migrant crisis.
But keen to jump on the Brexit result, EU minister Omer Celik argued that the bloc needs his country more than ever after Britain voted to pull out in the historic referendum.
