'Miserable Europe' works against Turkey

Postby kimon07 » Tue Dec 06, 2011 9:05 pm

The European Council increased its criticism against Turkey after Gül's “miserable Europe” statement, broadcaster NTV reported on its website.

The European Council draft reportedly supported Greek Cyprus ambitions in the recent Mediterranean conflict and criticized the Turkish government's attitude during the gas drilling crisis.

The conclusions were highly influenced by Greek Cyprus requests following Gül's “miserable Europe” statement, reports claimed.

Several positive aspects were noted in the conclusions on Turkey's regional impact, but criticism fell heavier on the Turkish government throughout the document.

The report said Turkey should stop threatening Greek Cyprus on the gas drilling conflict and accept the Israeli-Greek Cyprus agreements as legal proceedings.

Ankara is further advised to normalize relations with Greek Cyprus as well as open up its ports.

The draft also voices concern about freedom of expression in Turkey, citing banned websites and arrested journalists.

A silly European report is not going to allow for any changes because Turkey knows that she will not be pressured. Gul is probably saying fcuk all

Not such a silly report, H. The message has got through to Turkey loud and clear. Gul's remarks did not go down well in Europe. Cypriot positions have received unanimous endorsement by the EU. Turkey is nowhere near accession. Whereas Croatia has finished its accession process and will join in 2013. This is the EU laying down the law, quite clearly to Turkey. Turkey cannot force its way into the EU at the expense of Cyprus. If Turkey wants to revive its faltering EU accession, it has to find a way to end the occupation of Cyprus. But even that won't guarantee Turkey entry. It's tough being a Turk! Check out what the Turkish Press are saying...

isn't there a time limit for the accession process?? Surely the turks must have gone past that sell by date..

Why dosn't the RoC complain about this. For as long as there are no consequences to turkey then she can continue to pay silly beggers and the EU just stand and take it up the shitter.

Why aren't we making more noises???
