Leyen, President of the European Commission, spoke at the joint press conference with the President of the European Parliament and the Prime Minister of Slovenia.
The German politician was asked a question regarding President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan’s visit to the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus on 20 July.
Von der Leyen said she met with Erdogan a while ago. “We are extremely sensitive about how this visit will be. My stance was very clear that the EU would never accept the two-state solution offer. Erdogan knows our stance on this issue,” he said.
