    The transfer of the EU presidency from Britain to Austria is being interpreted in the British press as “Viennese set to repel Turks' new advance on the West.” The Times of London, in an article on the subject, cited the 1683 Siege of Vienna, adding, “A little over three centuries ago Austrian forces, reinforced by their Polish allies, dashed the Ottoman Empire’s aggressive ambitions for Western Europe when they defeated the Turkish army at the second siege of Vienna."

    "Ironically, having been the bulwark against Turkish military expansion in 1683, Austria now finds itself representing its 24 EU allies in handling Ankara’s diplomatic campaign to win a place at the European Union’s top table.” The Times interpreted the Viennese presidency as a repetition of history.
