Turkey into EU?

Right after Bilderberg meeting Javier Solana is lobbying for Turkey's EU membership which is published in many languages under the title "Why Turkey must join the European Union"

In 1999, Turkey did not want to become an accession candidate, because its leaders thought that the conditions would be too tough.

I was there; I talked to Prime Minister Bülent Ecevit at midnight,

then to President Süleyman Demirel. And, two days later, Ecevit was in Helsinki to declare formally Turkey’s wish to become an EU member. And we said: Turkey will be an EU member. I supported the signature of that document; I would do the same today."
