Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
One of my concerns is this. If a deal on Cyprus ever comes about, the gov't of cyprus will have toa ccept a host of derogations to the EU's acquis communitaire as a concession to Turkey. Once this happens, you will have effectively allowed exceptions to the bedrock of EU principles in certain situations. Turkey is large enough and important enough a country to ask for similar derogtaions in Turkey proper, especially dealing with the Kurdish issue.
