/PanARMENIAN.Net/ Mass rallies against Turkey's EU membership were
held in Istanbul. Tens of thousands of nationalists marched along the
streets shouting out anti-European slogans like "We do not believe
EU", "No to EU, no to U.S., long live to independent nationalist
Turkey." The rallies proceeded without incidents and police did not
interfere. The special meeting of the EU Foreign Ministers held in
Luxemburg was fruitless, since the parties failed to agree on the
terms for Turkey's accession to the EU.

The issue will be once again discussed today.
