To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs (1) what representations he has made to the EU concerning the adoption of Turkish as an official EU language; and if he will make a statement; [R] [123207](2) whether Turkish will be an official language of the EU after Turkey accedes to the EU; and if he will make a statement.

The UK strongly supports Turkey's EU candidacy. Whether Turkish would become an official language of the EU after Turkey's accession would depend on the terms under which Turkey acceded.
