Cyprus is preparing to enter into negotiations with the European Union for accession. If the latter does not pose major problems on the economic level, it is different from the political field. Indeed, the de facto partition, which reflects the very unsatisfactory development of inter-community negotiations at the United Nations, constitutes a major obstacle. It also seems difficult to separate the question of this accession from that of Turkey. A Turkey that is not a member of either the EU or the WEU could feel isolated in the region vis-à-vis Europe if Cyprus joins the EU.
