How will new Treaty affect Cyprus veto on Turkey's EU bid ?

Postby Jerry » Thu Dec 13, 2007 12:01 pm

This is from the BBC website, has Cyprus lost its "weapon" against Turkey?

A national veto disappears when member states agree that decisions that have hitherto been taken by a unanimous vote, can in future be taken by a majority vote. Opponents of European integration talk about surrendering vetoes, supporters prefer to talk about about pooling sovereignty - but neither side disputes that the Reform Treaty takes this step in somewhere between 45 and 70 policy areas

Someone on this site said that the Cyprus problem would be solved in 2008, did he know this was going to happen - the plot thickens!

Jerry the Cypro will not be solved in 2008 and the British along with EU parliament have sold Cyprus out again. No surprise. The minute the EU opened membership talks with Turkey after Turkey's refusal to open its ports to Cyriot vessels, was a clear indication that small EU nations have been screwed.

This will only serve to reveal just how many countries really DO NOT want Turkey to join the EU. :lol:

To date they did not have to reveal themselves as opponents to Turkey joining, because Cyprus did it for them! (previously Germany/France and previous to that Greece).

Maybe when the truth is revealed, we will really see the nail knock Turkey's false hopes on the head.

Good riddance to bad rubbish I say. :D

The worst thing that can happen to Cyprus is for Turkey to stay outside the EU. The people that cannot comprehend this simple truth are the biggest enemies of Cyprus, to use the same terminology of the cretins.
