It's a rather long doc to read and discuss, but I got as far as the first page and read this:

– briefly describes the relations between Turkey and the European Union;
– analyses the situation in Turkey in terms of the political criteria for membership;
– analyses the situation in Turkey on the basis of the economic criteria for membership;
– reviews Turkey’s capacity to take on the obligations of membership, i.e. the acquis
expressed in the Treaties, the secondary legislation, and the policies of the Union.

Then I realised that Turkey has no chance to meet this criteria or is taking the mick, so I gave up.

Seriously, Turkey to take on the obligation of the Acquis, ok, next joke.

I've got some twenty odd pages in, and as I'm reading on a smart phone, my eyes feel like they are turning inside out!

Thus far my 'conclusion' is..

MUST TRY HARDER!

Now where is my red pen? :lol:

The Foreign Affairs Committee of the European Parliament have supported The Five Fundamentals of the Enlargement Commissoioner Stephan Fule that applicants to join the Union must comply with.

These FIve Fundamentals are...

The rule of law

Strengthening economic governance

Support for democratic institutions

Respect for fundamental rights

Ties between the enlargement countries and EU member states

"... Foreign affairs MEPs praised Commissioner Stefan Füle's approach of "fundamentals first" in assessing countries' readiness for EU membership, in a debate with him on Wednesday. They also backed the Commission's fifth recommendation to the Council to open accession negotiations with the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (fYRoM).

The committee overwhelmingly supported Mr Füle's "five fundamentals" underpinning the enlargement process: the rule of law, strengthening economic governance, support for democratic institutions, respect for fundamental rights and ties between the enlargement countries and EU member states

MEPs also welcomed his confirmation that the Copenhagen enlargement criteria, established in 1993, remained valid..."
