    Euro MP warns Turkey about EU obligations

    by Nicos Bellos

    Brussels, Mar 26 (CNA) -- It is inconceivable for Turkey to begin accession negotiations with the European Union before a political settlement of the Cyprus question, Arie Oostlander, rapporteur for Turkey's EU membership at the European Parliament, has said.

    The Euro MP warned Ankara that Cyprus could prove to be a very big obstacle in its course to EU accession and said that Turkey's possible military intervention in Iraqi territory would jeopardise further the country's European aspirations.

    He said that unless the Turkish government severs its links with the military, it will not achieve anything.
