no sooner than in 15 years, German Foreign Minister Joschka Fischer
stated, D-Radio reported. In his words, Turkey has to carry out
numerous reforms what will take a great deal of time. "Germans
like Europe on the whole are interested in changes in Turkey", he

can be proved by the beginning of debates on the Armenian Genocide",
