The European Union could suspend membership negotiations with Turkey completely over its refusal to move on Cyprus, according to EU Enlargement Commissioner Olli Rehn.

EU Ambassadors have decided to move faster in accession talks with Croatia than with Turkey because of Ankara’s unwillingness to open its ports and airports to traffic from Cyprus. Turkey conclued the first chapter of detailed negotiations with the 25 nation bloc, that of science and research, on June 12. It is the first time that the EU has made Turkey wait in talks because of its stance on Cyprus.
