    [01] IMPROVEMENT IN TURCO-ARMENIAN RELATIONS

Prime Minister Mesut Yilmaz announced recently a governmental decision to strengthen the economy in the border regions by opening the Alican and Dogukapi border gates. As Foreign Minister Ismail Cem prepares for a visit to Azerbaijan, Ankara has again started to discuss widely the future of Turco-Armenian relations which is one of the main issues on the Turco-Azerbaijani agenda, while positive signs are given for the solution of the Nagorno-Karabakh territorial dispute between Armenia and Azerbaijan. /All papers/

    [04] EU AFRAID OF TURKEY

    The Turkey Research Center (TAM) has compared Turkey to the countries labelled by the EU as "EU cand.date members". The Center director Prof.Dr. Faruk Sen noted that if Turkey becomes an EU member, it would become a heavy burden for EU regional, social and agricultural funds. In addition, Turkey would be represented by 81 deputies at the European Parliament and would be able to play an effective role in defining EU general policies. According to Sen, the EU is afraid of these prospects and is shying away from integration with Turkey in an effort to escape the complicated consequences of such a move. /All papers/
