Chapter Summary

David Hannay makes a valid point in stressing that Turkey's accession to the European Union is – potentially – in the interest of Cyprus. Cyprus as well as Greece supports such accession. But, in urging all parties to inject some new thinking into the UN-sponsored negotiations, he ignores the fact that while substantial concessions have been made by the Greek-Cypriot side, not an inch has been given by the other side. If Turkey negotiates in good faith within the agreed framework, complies with its legal obligations to Cyprus and the EU under the 2005 Ankara protocol and stops interfering forcibly in the Cyprus exclusive economic zone, the road would be opened wide to further progress in Turkey's accession and to a viable Cyprus compromise solution.
