By Suleyman Kurt
Published: Saturday 26, 2005
Agreeing on the content of the additional protocol to adapt 10 new members including Greek Cyprus with the European Union (EU) as part of the Customs Union agreement, Ankara has taken action to begin the signing process.
Turkey has asked Brussels to send the text as soon as possible, in order to begin the procedure immediately. Turkey will forward a letter to the commission after examining the text and will then announce that has begun the signing process. Ankara, whose demands were partly met as a result of recent negotiations, excluded the demands relating to airports and seaports from the agreement as the agreement became operant temporarily."
