The Brusselles EU Summit at last came to end. As it was expected
the participants approved the decision to suspend by 8 articles the
negotiations on Turkey’s EU membership, so as to satisfy the public
opinion in Europe. This decision was included in the EU declaration,
which also emphasized the importance of fulfilling the commitments
of the European states.
Apparently, Ankara is satisfied with such approach of the EU, as the
latter did not impose definite terms either of opening Turkey’s air
and sea space for Cyprus or recognizing the republic.
