Egemen Bagis - Turkey's Chief EU Negotiator

Egemen Bagis is Turkey's Chief EU negotiator in charge of overseeing his country's entry into the EU. Stephen Sackur talks to him about whether Turkey will ever become a fully fledged member of the EU.

Or does the EU need Turkey as much as Turkey needs the EU?
