France willing to soften stance on Turkey EU bid
France said on Friday it was willing to unblock two key chapters of negotiation for Turkey's bid to become a member of the European Union.
Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius told reporters: "Today, I am announcing that France is ready to open new chapters for negotiations, notably chapters 23 and 24", which refer to fundamental rights and justice.
The road to membership of the 28-member bloc is long and arduous.
