Turkey is still aiming for full membership of the European Union but is frustrated by progress so far, and will support U.N. efforts towards a resolution in Cyprus, according to a new government programme announced on Tuesday.

The programme, read out by Prime Minister Binali Yildirim in parliament after he earlier named his new cabinet, also said the government would work on boosting ties with Iran, and on mending relations with Russia through dialogue.
