The attention of the EU, which last week agreed finally on the "Cyprus Declaration," is expected to focus this week on the working of the Accession Talks Framework Document. The subject will be the main ingredients for a September 29 meeting in Brussels. If there is no agreement reached then, EU ministers will come together on the morning of October 3 to meet and agree finally. Turkey's insistence on actually seeing the document prior to the start of the October 3 talks has put EU term president England in an uncomfortable position.
The Euopean Parliament, meanwhile, is expected tomorrow to approve the additional protocol signed by both Turkey and the EU. The European Parliament will hold a special session on Turkey, and will vote on the parliament's "recommendation" of Turkey for EU membership. It is also expected that England's Foreign Minister, Jack Straw, who will speak at the opening of the October 3 accession talks, will touch on the "Cyrpus Declaration" in his speech.
