Death penalty in Turkey would bar EU membership: EU`s Mogherini

EU candidate Turkey would be barred from joining the bloc if it reinstated the death penalty following last week`s failed military coup.



Brussels: EU candidate Turkey would be barred from joining the bloc if it reinstated the death penalty following last week`s failed military coup, EU foreign affairs head Federica Mogeherini said Monday.

"Let me be very clear... no country can become an EU state if it introduces the death penalty," Mogherini said when asked about the possible impact on long-stalled accession talks with Ankara.
