Pro-Turkey Haider Makes a U-turn on Country's EU Bid

So far exhibiting an affirmative attitude towards Turkey's accession to the European Union (EU), Kaernten Province President Jorg Haider made a complete turn around this time.

He has announced that now he now sides with the suspension of the Union's enlargement and leaving membership negotiations with Turkey completely out of circuit.

A hard-line nationalist, Haider in the past had repeated his support of Turkey's EU bid. Now, he thinks, before enlargement Union should solve the unemployment problem first and work harder towards infrastructure reforms.
