Turkish officials estimate that 15,000 Syrian refugees are waiting on the Syrian side of the border, and expect up to 50,000 more.14:11 06.02.16 | 0 comments
when did 'acquiescence to israel' get added to the "copenhagen criteria"? is it retroactive? actually, it's NOT. and considering the climate towards israel in europe of late, over its military exercise in gaza, i seriously doubt that turkey's stance would be used to bar it from membership. there's little doubt that it'll become a member once it's resolved the issues that have prevented it in the past. it MIGHT catch some flack from nato, but even there...how much would really be anything MORE than lip service in deference to the united states?
