U.K. Prime Minister David Cameron said Thursday that the case for Turkey’s membership in the European Union was “clearer than ever.”

In a joint news conference at Downing Street with Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Cameron said he will continue to champion Turkey’s membership.

Cameron said Turkey’s entry into the EU would offer “increased economic prosperity, a bigger market for goods and services, more energy security, and real benefits for the EU’s long term stability.”

Turkey’s membership talks began in 2005.
