EU Accession Talks with Turkey to Resume Next Month

The European Union (EU) has announced that it will resume accession talks with Turkey in November after a three-year hiatus.  Talks were delayed in large part due to concerns over human rights issues and Turkey's troubled relationship with Cyprus.  The European Commission issued a report last week concluding that Turkey has made progress in some areas, but expressing continuing concerns, especially with respect to human rights issues.  There are 35 chapters involving different policies that must be agreed upon before the talks will be concluded.  Only 13 have been opened so far, so there is still a long road ahead.
