Chapter Summary

Mr. Hugh Pope of the International Crisis Group makes several interesting observations under the intriguing heading Pax Ottomana? Mr. Pope says that the AKP's zero-problem policy has been largely beneficial and has gone a long way towards defining a new national role for Turkey and toward win-win outcomes. If the Cyprus problem is solved through a viable compromise settlement with Turkey's constructive contribution, Turkey will gain more than removing a major obstacle to its EU accession course. A reunited and peaceful Cyprus, free of foreign troops, will be transformed into a bridge of peace instead of a bone of contention and will cooperate with Turkey as well as with Greece through trade, tourism, finance and, quite possibly, mutually beneficial water and energy projects. This can be achieved through good neighborly relations on the basis of the UN Charter principles and the acquis communautaire, not through occupation, domination and Pax Ottomana.
