"If they do not back down regarding some injustices such as the introduction of visas, which they use as latent sanctions, if they do not correct their mistakes... From our side, they will completely lose the right to express political, social, economic and military expectations," he warned. he.

"If the European Union intends to stop the accession process that exists only on paper, it will be their decision," he added.
