European racism is the main reason why Turkey will not be accepted to join the EU, says Noam Chomsky according to Turkish newspaper, Today's Zaman.

“Europe can claim with some justification that Turkey has not satisfied all of the human rights conditions. On the other hand, I don’t really think this is the reason. …I think it is plain racism,” Chomsky said in an interview with the newspaper on Sunday.

Chomsky, who visited İstanbul on Friday to participate in an international conference on the freedom of expression, said he had seen great improvements in Turkey's approach to human rights, especially in its treatment toward the Kurds.
