Turkey, Croatia and EU

The European Union agreed to open talks on two policy areas of Turkey's 35-chapter accession package at the end of the last week, bringing the overall number of chapters open to ten. Turkey, for its part, urged the 27-nation bloc to pressure Greece over the divided island of Cyprus. Also, the EU and Croatia opened negotiations on an additional chapter in the country's accession package, with Enlargement commissioner Rehn indicating Zagreb could wrap up the talks as soon as next year.
