"Hannay: Turkey’s EU course is pivotal for solution
BRITAIN’S former special envoy to Cyprus, Lord David Hannay, said the key to a solution of the Cyprus problem hinged entirely on Turkey joining the EU.
Speaking at a presentation of his book Cyprus – The Search for a Solution in London, Hannay expressed the opinion that if the Turkish EU application was rejected, then there would be no settlement of the issue.
“If the Turkish application is rejected then forget about it, there is not going to be a settlement. It is as bad as that. That’s my prediction. But I don’t think that will happen,” he said, adding that despite the rejection of the Constitutional Treaty in Holland and France, the EU would not forget its commitment to Turkey. "
