ISTANBUL - European Union candidate Turkey's only goal in talks with the bloc is full membership and no other options are acceptable, Turkish EU Minister Egemen Bagis told a news conference on Wednesday after the release of the latest EU progress report.

The Commission urged the European Union to continue talks with Turkey but said no progress was achieved in the last year, adding that it was concerned about tensions between Ankara and EU-member Cyprus.
