Conservative Friends of Turkey

Conservative Friends of Turkey (CFT) is a group associated with the British Turkish membership of the EU and highlights Turkey’s importance as an ally of the UK. CFT lists the following activities to achieve these aims: by providing information on Turkey through regular briefings and newsletters; by organising meetings and events in Britain, Turkey and Belgium; and by arranging British parliamentary delegations to Turkey [1].


CFT counts 21 MPs, 4 peers and 2 MEPs among its founders [2].


Recent CFT activities include: the official launch with Foreign Secretary Rt Hon William Hague MP,[2][3] launch of the Brussels branch with Daniel Hannan MEP and Geoffrey Van Orden OBE MEP,[4][5] a joint dinner with Cities of London and Westminster Conservative Association[6][7] and a joint reception with Westminster North Conservative Association hosting Defence Secretary Rt Hon Dr Liam Fox MP.[8][9]


CFT started publishing a monthly newsletter in early 2009, an archive of past newsletters can be found on the official website [3].
