EU commissioner forbids help for Turkey from affiliated countries.

EU countries should not offer Turkey financial help, the commissioner in charge of enlargement issues suggested in a newspaper interview on Wednesday, two days ahead of a visit by President Recep Tayyip Erdogan to Germany.

“It is not necessary for us to jump in at this point.

“The fundamental economic problems facing Turkey were created domestically,’’ Hahn added.
